Drury has been bouncing between the Majors and Triple-A this season, with the Yankees optioning him to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre most recently on July 10. In his last seven games before being sent back down, he was 3-for-22 with three RBIs and six strikeouts.

Drury's first full season in the Majors was with the D-backs in 2016. He was traded to the Yankees this past offseason for pitcher Taylor Widener. Drury had severe migraines that put him on the disabled list early in the season, and he hasn't been able to establish himself in the Yanks' lineup, battling both injuries and demotions throughout the season.
