Brandon Drury was acquired by the Yankees in a 3-team trade on February 20th. He was added to the team to reduce the urgency of expecting Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres of starting the season on the roster out of the gate.

His arrival does not necessarily mean that Gleyber or Miguel will not make the roster, especially with Andujar MASHING during Spring Training thus far. But it does mean that the starting spot at third base has heated up between Andujar and Drury during this time.

This competition is a great thing for the Yankees. Drury is a cost-effective utility guy who played 2nd base almost exclusively last year. In 2017 the “Muffin Man” (shout out Marie for the genius nickname)┬áhit .267 with 37 doubles, 13 homers, 63 RBIs and a .764 OPS in 135 games.

It’s tough to project his numbers right now because time will tell where and how much he will be playing. However, Drury will add a presence of a guy who has been around 3 seasons and can be counted on to play solid ball.
