Brandon Drury has agreed to a two-year, $17 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels.
Drury had a terrific season in 2022, slashing .263/.320/.492 and earning a Silver Slugger in the National League. It's unclear where the utilityman will slot into the Angels lineup in 2023, but he should be an everyday player whether it be in the infield or outfield.
Padres DH Brandon Drury played a big part in San Diego's 13-6 win over the Rockies Sunday. He finished 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored.
It was Drury's 28th home run of the season. Fantasy managers likely knew that his power would take a hit going to San Diego, but the average has been mostly dreadful with the Padres as well. Maybe Sunday's performance can get him going a bit as the playoffs approach.
Brandon Drury had a big night at the plate for the Padres in a 12-3 win over the Diamondbacks Friday. He finished 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI.
With all of the talk surrounding the Juan Soto trade that also landed Josh Bell in San Diego, it's been Brandon Drury who has made the biggest impact offensively. He is up to 27 home runs on the season now, just one home run behind Manny Machado for the team lead.
Padres manager Bob Melvin told reporters Brandon Drury is feeling significantly better and a return early next week in the Mariners series is likely.
Melvin said Drury is unlikely to return this weekend, paving the way for a potential return early next week in Seattle. Drury was hit in the head last week and later placed on the 7-day concussion IL.
Brandon Drury could return after the required seven days on the concussion IL. He was hit on the cheek flap of his batting helmet by a curveball on September 2nd and was placed on the IL on September 5th.
Drury stated that he was feeling ok the day after being hit by the pitch, which is great news. Based on his progression since landing on the IL, it looks as if the 30-year-old should be reinstated when he is eligible to return on September 10th. Drury is slashing .262/.319/.496 with 25 home runs and 79 RBIs in 119 games this season.
