Brandon Drury said Monday that he has been prescribed an anti-inflammatory by a migraine specialist.

Drury landed on the disabled list earlier this month due to severe migraines. He said Monday that he’s still dealing with headaches and blurred vision and is still waiting on some test results. He's hopeful he's finally on the road to figuring things out, but his return doesn't sound especially imminent.
Apr 16 - 3:01 PM

Brandon Drury (migraines) underwent a number of tests Monday in New York.

The Yankees are still waiting on the results. Drury has a long history with migraines and only recently disclosed the issue. There should be more clarity on his status soon.
Apr 10 - 5:15 PM

Yankees placed INF Brandon Drury on the 10-day disabled list with severe migraines.

Drury was forced to leave Friday's contest against the Orioles in the sixth inning due to migraines and blurred vision, and apparently the issue is severe enough that he needs to be shut down for awhile. No corresponding move has been announced yet.
Apr 7 - 9:48 AM

Brandon Drury was forced to leave Friday's game against the Orioles due to migraines and blurred vision.

Drury was replaced by pinch hitter Ronald Torreyes in the sixth inning, but no reason was initially given for Drury's early exit. It doesn't sound like he will require a trip to the disabled list, but monitor his status on Saturday to be sure.
Apr 7 - 12:32 AM

Brandon Drury hit his first homer as a member of the Yankees in a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Drury's first blast came against Marcus Stroman with a runner on in the third inning. He's off to an excellent start, and his offensive ability near the bottom of the lineup is one of the reasons why New York has one of the best lineups in baseball. This could be a breakout candidate for the 2018 campaign.

Brandon Drury (elbow) said Saturday that he has no doubt he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Drury noted that his left elbow is already improving, after getting drilled by a pitch during Friday's Grapefruit League game. As an added measure of protection, he will now wear an elbow guard while at the dish.
Mar 24 - 9:45 AM

Brandon Drury had x-rays on his elbow come back negative on Friday.

Drury was hit by a pitch on Friday and exited as a precaution, but the x-rays didn't reveal any damage. He may be given an off day or two as we near the regular season, but there's no reason to think he won't be ready for Opening Day.
Mar 23 - 3:57 PM

Brandon Drury will undergo x-rays after getting hit in the elbow by a pitch in the Grapefruit League on Friday.

Drury is currently penciled in as the starter at third base for the Yankees to open the season. We'll update you when we know the results of the x-rays.
Mar 23 - 3:21 PM

Brandon Drury went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in a Grapefruit League loss to the Tigers on Saturday.

The young third baseman has been hitting well this spring as he battles Miguel Andujar for the starting job at the hot corner. Drury's .286/.390/.514 slash line and longer track record give him the leg up but he needs a good start to the regular season to keep the job for long.
Mar 17 - 7:46 PM

Yankees acquired INF Brandon Drury from the Diamondbacks as part of a three-team trade.

New York is sending second base prospect Nick Solak to the Rays and right-handed pitching prospect Taylor Widener to the Diamondbacks. Arizona will also get outfielder Steven Souza from Tampa Bay. Drury has long been of interest to the Yankees and figures to open the 2018 season as their starting third baseman, allowing prospect Miguel Andujar to get a little more seasoning in the minor leagues. Drury also has a lot of experience at second base and some in the corner outfield. He flashed decent power in Arizona and could carry deep-league fantasy value in the Bronx. The 25-year-old is under control through 2021.
Feb 20 - 7:53 PM

Brandon Drury has drawn "a fair bit" of trade interest this offseason, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.

The Yankees and Mets are two of the teams mentioned by Piecoro, who noted "a variety of clubs" have asked the D'backs about Drury this winter. He seems destined for a part-time role in Arizona in 2018, and Piecoro notes that while he has yet to be moved, that doesn't mean he'll necessarily open the year with the team. The 25-year-old hit .267/.317/.447 with 13 homers in 135 games last season.
Feb 10 - 9:50 PM

Brandon Drury didn't start but came off the bench to deliver a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the NLDS Game 2 loss to the Dodgers.

Daniel Descalso started at second base (he reached base twice), but Drury still did damage in this one, as he made the game interesting by bombing the first pitch he saw from Brandon Morrow in the seventh inning way out to left. That cut the Dodgers' lead to 7-5 at the time, but they tacked on an extra run and Arizona never got closer. It was the first home run Morrow has surrendered all year.

Brandon Drury hit his 12th home run of the season on Monday night against the Dodgers.

His solo shot was part of a four-run Arizona outburst in the top of the seventh inning. Drury finished the game 1-for-5. He's batting .270/.317/.458 in 118 games this year.

Brandon Drury went 1-for-3 with a double as the Diamondbacks got shut out by the Twins on Saturday.

Drury's double was one of only two knocks his team got in the whole game. Normally a second baseman, Drury was serving as the designated hitter in the interleague game. He has a .269 batting average with nine home runs and 48 RBI in 375 plate appearances.
