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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, May 1, 2014 10:15:00 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.
Thu, Apr 24, 2014 09:02:00 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.

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.
