Brandon Drury News
Los Angeles Angels infielder Brandon Drury finished his 2023 campaign on a high note on Sunday by clubbing two home runs in the 7-3 win over the visiting Oakland Athletics. Drury finished the game 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored. Drury missed seven weeks in the middle of the season with an injury, but he still managed to be one of the most productive hitters on the team this year. The 31-year-old veteran finished with a .262/.306/.497 slash line, an .803 OPS, 26 home runs, 30 doubles, three triples, 83 RBI and 61 runs scored in 523 plate appearances and 125 games. He came just two home runs shy of tying his career-high set last year. Drury has one more year left on the two-year deal he signed before the 2023 season.
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.
After a so-so career throughout his twenties, Brandon Drury had a breakout in 2022. He backed it up in 2023 and has turned himself into a viable fantasy option. Despite playing for three different organizations over the last two seasons, Drury put up near identical numbers. Over the last two years, he's averaged 27 homers, 85 RBI, 74 runs and one stolen base while hitting .262/.313/.495. He's only played 263 games over the last two seasons having missed a month with a shoulder injury in 2023. Otherwise, we'd be looking at a 30+ homer player in 2023 and would need to use a middle-round draft pick rather than a later one, as you do now. The departure of Shohei Ohtani has left a huge hole in the Angels lineup. But it does still contain Mike Trout and some interesting younger hitters so Drury should be able to help in all categories except steals. He's eligible at first and second base in most formats making him the perfect late-round bat that can fill in as your middle or corner infielder. His numbers over the last two years aren't anything fancy, but Drury's been consistently productive and should be again in 2024.
