Drury was acquired in a three team trade at the beginning of Spring Training. Leading to expected re-assigning of the Yankees hope third base prospect Miguel Andújar back to Triple A Scranton.
This Spring Drury has hit .239 batting average with 1 homerun and 5 rbi’s. Drury has played solid defense at third base and will look to take that solid play into the season.
