Brandon Drury buried the Rockies on Wednesday night, chipping in with four hits and a career-high six RBI in Arizona’s 16-5 victory at Coors Field.

The floodgates opened for Arizona during a 10-run fourth inning and Drury played a big role in the onslaught with two hits in the frame. He plated a pair of runs on a one-out double before dropping an RBI single to center later in the inning. Drury also contributed a two-run single in the sixth and another two-run single in the ninth. Through 64 games, Drury is slashing an impressive .304/.348/.500 with eight homers and 36 RBI.

Brandon Drury went 4-for-5 with a double and a home run as the Diamondbacks beat the Tigers on Tuesday night at Comerica Park.

The hot-hitting second baseman delivered a run-scoring single in the first inning then clobbered a two-run homer in the third. He has been an impressive asset in fantasy leagues thus far, slashing .296/.342/.505 with eight homers, 28 RBI and one stolen base.
Jun 14 - 12:04 AM

Brandon Drury connected for his sixth home run of the season, a two-run shot off of Milwaukee's Junior Guerra, in Saturday's home win.

Drury has popped two homers with four RBI over the past four games, but he is still hitting just .200 (5-for-25) in eight games in June, dropping his average from .295 to .283.
Jun 11 - 4:14 AM

Brandon Drury went 3-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI as the Diamondbacks fell to the Brewers on Sunday afternoon.

Drury plated a run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, pulling the Diamondbacks to within four runs at 8-4. All three of his hits in the contest were singles. He has handled the transition to second base beautifully this season and is slashing a healthy .299/.337/.463 with four homers and 19 RBI on the year.
May 28 - 6:29 PM

Brandon Drury went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer and a double as the Diamondbacks trounced the Pirates 11-4 on Friday.

Drury is up to .325/.363/.504 after a nice couple of weeks. He strikes out enough that the average isn't likely to remain particularly strong, but he can do better than the three homers in 117 at-bats he's amassed so far.
May 13 - 1:20 AM

Brandon Drury finished 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles with an RBI in Tuesday's loss against the Tigers.

Drury has tailed off a bit in the month of May, hitting at a paltry .188 clip. He is considered a below-average defender, but he is worth using in most fantasy leagues if you can regain the form he displayed in the first month when he posted a .318/.370/.435 slash line with a homer and eight RBI.
May 10 - 3:11 AM

Brandon Drury went 2-for-6 with a double and a run scored as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies in 13 innings on Sunday.

Drury led off the 13th inning with an infield single and rode home on Daniel Descalso's walk-off home run. He has had a nice first month of the season at the plate, slashing .318/.370/.435 with a homer and eight RBI.
Apr 30 - 8:32 PM

Brandon Drury finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-6 loss against the Rockies.

Drury has hit safely in five straight outings and eight of his past nine appearances. He appears to be over the jammed right knee which sent him to the bench in the middle of the week. Drury is considered a below-average defender but if he keeps hitting he will remain a fixture in the Arizona lineup.
Apr 30 - 12:51 AM

Brandon Drury started Friday and went 1-for-4 against the Rockies.

Drury didn't play Thursday after leaving Wednesday's game with a jammed right knee.
Apr 29 - 2:41 AM

Brandon Drury (knee) is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Thursday against the Padres.

Drury is sitting after jamming his knee in a collision with Padres starter Trevor Cahill on Wednesday night. Chris Owings will handle second base in his absence with Nick Ahmed manning shortstop. Drury said he feels "good" and expects to be back in the lineup this weekend.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: While Drury won't be able to get in on the fun, the D'Backs still setup as the top offense on the night slate. They'll face off with Jered Weaver - who has predictably struggled to start the year, allowing 7 HRs in 23 IP - in hitter friendly Chase Field, setting them up for a big night at the dish. As has been the case over the past few years, Weaver still can't miss bats, and given his inability to keep the ball on the ground, this match-up sets up very poorly. The entire Arizona lineup is in play.
Apr 27 - 6:02 PM

Brandon Drury left Wednesday's game against the Padres with a jammed right knee.

He suffered the injury in a collision with Padres starter Trevor Cahill at first base. Drury singled and walked twice before exiting. After he left, Chris Owings moved from shortstop to second base with Nick Ahmed taking over at shortstop. Drury is day-to-day.
Apr 27 - 12:09 AM

Brandon Drury finished 3-for-5 with a double in Tuesday's victory against the Padres.

Drury raised his average to .300 with the three-hit night, but it wasn't all great. He also struck out twice to give him 13 strikeouts over the past 14 games. He is considered below average defensively so he needs to keep hitting. So far, so good, as he upped his season average to an even .300. As long as he keeps his batting average up he will play regularly and serve as a solid stopgap middle infielder in most NL-only fantasy formats.
Apr 26 - 1:18 AM

Brandon Drury reached four times Friday, going 2-for-3 with a double, two walks and two runs scored.

That'll help his .298 OBP. Drury is likely to be a well below average defensive second baseman, so it's imperative that he hits in order to remain a regular. He'll probably be solid enough with the bat, but we still suspect the Diamondbacks would be better off with Chris Owings at second and either Nick Ahmed or Ketel Marte at short.
Apr 22 - 1:32 AM

Brandon Drury is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Monday.

It looks to be a simple day off. Daniel Descalso will handle second base.
