Brandon Drury went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Dodgers.
Drury notched his second major league home run on Thursday, a solo shot against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning. He would later add his third double of the season. Since being called up on September 1, the 22-year-old third baseman is 12-for-40 (.300) with two homers, three doubles and seven RBI. He hasn't lit exactly lit the world on fire in his limited action, but as one of the Diamondbacks' top prospects, should see more playing time next season. Sep 24 - 6:48 PM

Brandon Drury will make his major league debut Tuesday against the Rockies.

Drury, who was called up Tuesday, will start at third base and bat seventh against left-hander Yohan Flande. The 22-year-old has batted .303/.344/.412 with five homers and 61 RBI over 130 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. The power has fallen off a bit, but he's ready for his first taste of the majors and could be relevant in NL-only fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks recalled 3B Brandon Drury from Triple-A Reno.

Drury's one of the Diamondbacks top prospects. The 22-year-old third baseman was slashing a robust .331/.384/.458 with two homers and 25 RBI in 251 at-bats for Triple-A Reno. He'll see his first major league action as part of the Snakes' expanded September roster.
Sep 1 - 12:16 PM

Diamondbacks 3B prospect Brandon Drury matched his career-high with five hits Tuesday in a victory for Triple-A Reno.

He finished a triple shy of the cycle. Drury has hit an astounding .412 over his eight-game hitting streak. The 22-year-old has shown remarkable plate discipline since his call-up, walking 18 times with only 31 strikeouts in 225 plate appearances. He could be a possibility for the Diamondbacks when the rosters expand in September.
Aug 19 - 4:09 PM

Diamondbacks optioned 3B Brandon Drury to Double-A Mobile.

Drury made a nice impression with a .435/.533/.957 batting line and three homers over 30 plate appearances this spring, but he doesn't have a place on the big league club yet. The 22-year-old is one of the team's top prospects and could push for big league time in 2015.
Mar 20 - 12:45 PM

Brandon Drury went 2-for-3 and drove home three runs on Tuesday, propelling the Diamondbacks to a 10-0 win over the Giants in Cactus League action.

Drury victimized World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner for a solo homer then later delivered a two-run double, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3. The 22-year-old is one of the top position prospects in the D'Backs organization and is certainly making a strong impression this spring, hitting .435/.500/.957 with three homers and nine RBI. A third baseman by trade, he has also seen time at second base this spring.
Mar 17 - 10:54 PM

Brandon Drury left Tuesday’s game versus the Giants after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch.

Drury appeared to be in a lot of pain but said after leaving that he’ll be fine, so it looks like he won’t even have to undergo tests. The third base prospect hit his third homer of the spring before exiting and is now hitting .435 in Cactus League play.
Mar 17 - 10:45 PM

Brandon Drury will start at second base in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Rockies.

It's an interesting note, as Drury has mostly played third base in the minors. The 22-year-old batted .299/.362/.510 with 23 home runs and 95 RBI across 136 games between High-A and Double-A last season and is considered one of the Diamondbacks' top position prospects.
Mar 4 - 10:12 AM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of 3B Brandon Drury from Double-A Mobile.

Drury, 22, hit .299/.362/.510 with 23 homers and 95 RBI between High- and Double-A in 2014. He could begin next season at Triple-A.

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.

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.
Sat, Aug 2, 2014 11:07:00 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.
Sat, Jul 26, 2014 10:20:00 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.
Fri, Jun 27, 2014 01:00:00 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.
Sat, May 31, 2014 11:40:00 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.
