When the Yankees acquired Brandon Drury from the Diamondbacks as part of a three-team trade in February, it’s fair to say no one saw his tenure in The Bronx ending like this.
Drury was traded again Thursday, this time to the Blue Jays, in part of a package for left-hander J.A. Happ.
The 25-year-old Drury was expected to provide insurance if Miguel Andujar or Gleyber Torres weren’t ready to start the season. As he reminded reporters after his move to the Blue Jays became official, Drury opened the season as the Yankees’ starting third baseman.
But after a four-game hitless streak in April, Drury told the Yankees he was dealing with blurred vision and migraines — and had been for years.
