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. Sun, Oct 8, 2017 08:33:00 AM

Brandon Drury is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Saturday against the Cardinals.

It's a scheduled day off for Drury. He'll be spelled at second base by Daniel Descalso, who is hitting sixth against right-hander Mike Leake. Like Chris Owings, who is also getting the day off on Saturday, Drury has struggled since the All-Star break, batting just .222 over 36 second half at-bats.

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.

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.

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 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.
Sun, May 28, 2017 06:29:00 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.
Sat, May 13, 2017 01:20:00 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.
Wed, May 10, 2017 03:11:00 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.
Sun, Apr 30, 2017 08:32:00 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.
