Brandon Drury News
Los Angeles Angels infielder Brandon Drury is out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Seattle Mariners. This doesn't appear to be injury related, so fantasy managers can assume his absence is for rest purposes. Drury has struggled lately, going 2-for-21 over his last five games. He'll get a chance to rest and hopefully get back on track. In his absence, Eduardo Escobar will cover second base and bat fifth versus right-hander Bryan Woo on Tuesday.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Brandon Drury struggled at the dish on Thursday against the Cleveland Guardians, going 0-for-5, but his club still held onto a 3-2 win. The 31-year-old has struggled a bit since the start of August, hitting just .236 but with six home runs, 22 RBI, and 14 runs across 30 games. Overall, Drury's slashing .264/.305/.486 with 20 bombs, 50 runs, 67 RBI, and no stolen bases over 105 contests. He's taken a minor step back from 2022 when he went deep 28 times with 87 RBI, but the veteran is still a solid source of power in all formats.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Brandon Drury (shoulder) has been activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's game against the Seattle Mariners. The right-handed slugger is back following a seven-week absence due to a left shoulder contusion. This is a bit shocking considering the Angels recently said they wanted Drury to get in more rehab games before activating him. Regardless, it sounds like Drury is good to go, so fantasy managers can get him back in their lineups. He'll bat fifth and play second base during Friday's contest.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Brandon Drury had a surprising 2022 campaign split between the Cincinnati Reds and the San Diego Padres. He slashed .263/.320/.492 and set career highs with 28 HRs, 87 RBI, 87 runs, and two stolen bases in 138 games, the most over his eight seasons. Drury was solid the year before, posting a .274 average and a .783 OPS, but owned a lowly .206 xBA and .348 xSLG. The veteran posted eye-popping splits in 2022 with a .298 average and 12 home runs over 52 contests at Great American Ballpark but hit .240 with 16 homers in 86 games elsewhere. Now, without the benefit of playing his home games in Cincinnati, Drury won't replicate his 2022 numbers. That's especially true when you look at his Statcast page- .240 xBA and .420 xSLG with 24.9 xHR. It helps that Drury can play all over the diamond, but he might have to share playing time with Gio Urshela and Jared Walsh, especially if he doesn't hit. The 30-year-old will never duplicate his 174 RBI plus runs, and he's never been fast enough to supply fantasy managers with steals (43rd-percentile sprint speed in 2022). Drury is not the player he showed this year, but his draft price (194 ADP) depicts a player with more talent at the dish.
