Brandon Drury Diagnosed With Fractured Hand



html_removed



Blue Jays INF Brandon Drury has been diagnosed with a fractured left hand, the club announced. He’s heading to the 10-day disabled list, with INF Richard Urenacoming up to take his spot on the active roster.


Drury, who’s closing in on his 26th birthday, has struggled at the plate to open his tenure in Toronto. He came over with OF Billy McKinney from the division-rival Yankees in a late-July deal that sent starter J.A. Happ to New York.


The anticipated timeline isn’t yet known, but it seems reasonable to anticipate that Drury will be out for most or all of the remainder of the season. While that’s not necessarily of significant impact to a Blue Jays club who’ve already sold off assets and raised the white flag on the 2018 season, it certainly adds another moral blow to a frustrating season for the former 13th-rounder. Following back-to-back solid (if unspectacular) seasons with the Diamondbacks, Drury looked to have carved out a place on the club’s major league roster for years to come.


Things took an unexpected turn, though, as Drury was shipped to the Yankees in the offseason as part of the 3-team trade that sent Steven Souza Jr. to the Diamondbacks. He figured to serve as a stopgap in the Yankees’ infield that would reduce the urgency to promote Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar, but blurred vision and migraines caused him to hit the DL in April, and Drury was optioned to Triple-A when he became healthy. From that point on, Drury was never truly able to get going, as evidenced by his .169/.256/.260 batting line across 86 plate appearances with the Yankees and Blue Jays.


The addition of Drury to the disabled list will thin out Toronto’s infield depth, leaving the uninspiring (and strikeout-prone) Urena as the club’s lone option to back up Yangervis SolarteAledmys Diaz and Devon Travis. The club has given no indication that they might add 3rd base superprospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to the MLB roster any time soon.

Good thing trades don't carry a money back guarantee with them, because I'm not about to give Happ back to the Jays for their damaged product. They bought it, they're stuck with it. CAVEAT EMPTOR/BUYER BEWARE!

What allows the Yanks to get away with it is that the Jays had complete medical reports on Drury, including the x-rays (the break didn't show up until an MRI was done).


However, if they want to be fair about it, the Yanks should make a quiet mini-dump deal to the Jays of one the halfway decent prospects they're not keeping on the 40-man in exchange for a non-prospect or a small amount of cash. Just to keep the Jays from whining about it.

Oh I'll be even nicer than that...I'll kindly give them FORMER A's pitching ACE, Sonny Gray, and to let them know there's no hard feelings, I'll even let the Jays pick up his salary.

I wouldn't give them anything. Drury is still going to be a part of their future. They weren't in the playoff hunt at the time of the trade or now. That would a different. Happ is a free agent. Unless traded Drury will be back next year for them.

That's a good idea ... give them Sonny.
