Diamondbacks third base prospect Brandon Drury went 2-for-3 with a home run and a walk for Double-A Mobile on Wednesday.

Drury has done well in his first 11 games in Double-A, hitting .297/.357/.730 with four doubles and four home runs. Drury only has average power upside, and his recent power outburst has come in a small sample size. He profiles as a solid defensive third baseman who hits .300 with around 10 homers and 30-plus doubles. Drury could be in the major leagues by the end of 2015.
Aug 14 - 10:30 AM

Diamondbacks third base prospect Brandon Drury went 1-for-1 with a pinch hit home run in the top of the ninth inning for Double-A Mobile on Friday.

Drury was not in the starting lineup to give him some time to get adjusted to his new team, but hit a home run in his Double-A debut. Drury hit .300/.366/.519 with 35 doubles, one triple, and 19 home runs over 107 games with High-A Visalia before his promotion. His power may have been exaggerated by the friendly confines of the California League, so it will be interesting to see how he does with the more neutral offensive environment and improved pitching of the Southern League.
Aug 2 - 11:07 AM

Diamondbacks third base prospect Brandon Drury went 3-for-5 with a double for High-A Visalia on Friday.

Drury is having a great year in 2014, hitting .294/.358/.505 with 33 doubles, one triple, and 17 home runs. Once viewed as a throw-in as part of the Justin Upton/Martin Prado trade, Drury has blossomed into a legitimate third base prospect who has the potential to hit .300 with 10-15 home runs and 30-plus doubles.
Jul 26 - 10:20 AM

Diamondbacks prospect 3B Brandon Drury was 4-for-5 with a double on Thursday for High-A Visalia.

The four-hit performance extended the 21-year-old's hitting streak to six games, during which he's batting .500/.519/.654 with four doubles, seven runs scored and three RBI. On the season, Drury is batting .296/.362/.522 with 13 home runs, 27 doubles, 52 RBI and a 55-28 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 75 games for Visalia. In 2013, his first year in the Diamondbacks' system after coming over from the Braves in the Justin Upton trade, Drury posted an .862 OPS with 15 homers, 51 doubles and 85 RBI in 134 games for Low-A South Bend.
Jun 27 - 1:00 PM

Diamondbacks third base prospect Brandon Drury went 2-for-4 with a home run and a double for High-A Visalia on Friday.

He has quietly continued to hit, putting up a .282/.340/.532 line with 19 doubles (second in California League) and 12 home runs (tied for third) in 54 games. His spike in doubles may be partially a product of the hitter-friendly parks in the California League, but he hit 51 doubles and 15 home runs in 2013, so a future with 30-plus doubles and 20 home runs is well within reason for Drury.
May 31 - 11:40 AM

Diamondbacks prospect third baseman Brandon Drury went 2-for-5 with two doubles for High-A Visalia.

Drury, once the low-level prospect in the Justin Upton trade, is hitting .296/.353/.556 with 10 doubles and six home runs in the California League. It's a hitter friendly league, but he hit .302/.362/.500 with 51 doubles and 15 home runs in the Midwest League in 2013.
May 1 - 10:15 AM

Diamondbacks prospect third baseman Brandon Drury slugged two home runs as part of a 3-for-5 day for High-A Visalia.

Drury hit 41 doubles and 14 home runs in 2013, so his total of eight doubles and five home runs through 20 games is likely inflated by the offense-friendly environment of the California League. Drury acquired by the Diamondbacks when they dealt Justin Upton, so if he turns into a .300 hitter with 15 home run power, it would be a good result. He lacks the talent to be an elite player, but if he comes close to his ceiling he could be a starter for a decade.
Apr 24 - 9:02 AM

Diamondbacks prospect 3B Brandon Drury was 2-for-4 with his third home run of the season on Tuesday.

Drury, 21, is batting .320 through six games this season for High-A Visalia, and he's been on fire over his last three contents, going 6-for-13 with two doubles, two home runs and seven RBI. In his first season in the Diamondbacks' organization last year, Drury batted .302/.362/.500 with 51 doubles, 15 home runs and 85 RBI in 134 games at Low-A South Bend.
Apr 9 - 11:58 AM

Diamondbacks acquired INF Brandon Drury from the Braves in the seven-player Justin Upton trade.

Drury, a 13th-round pick in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, batted .229/.270/.333 with six home runs and 51 RBI in 123 games last season at Low-A Rome. The 20-year-old has played primarily at first base and third base.
