Yankees get 'pumped' Brandon Drury in 3-group bargain
Rated 0 out of 5 stars based on 0 reviews.
Hits: 0

Giancarlo Stanton fell into the Yankees' laps toward the beginning of December and changed the composition of the lineup.

After two full-squad spring preparing exercises the Yankees on Tuesday filled a void at third base by getting 25-year-old infielder/outfielder Brandon Drury from the Diamondbacks in an arrangement that likewise sent Rays outfielder Steven Souza to Arizona.

The Yankees delivered small time center infielder Nick Solak to the Rays with small time right-hander Taylor Widener made a beeline for the Diamondbacks.

"Goodness man, I am pumped and can hardly wait to arrive,'' Drury disclosed to The Post on Tuesday night as he arranged for a Wednesday flight to Tampa. "I am considering the open door I have. Playing for the New York Yankees is a fantasy and I need to exploit it. I was a Yankee fan (as a kid).''

Inquired as to whether he knew anyone with the Yankees, Drury said new third base mentor Phil Nevin oversaw him in Triple-A.

So what sort of player are the Yankees getting?

"I am a person hungry to be incredible,'' Drury said. "I am will buckle down and center.''

The arrangement implies the Yankees won't roll the dice on two extremely youthful and unpracticed players at third (Miguel Andujar) and a respectable halfway point (Gleyber Torres). The Yankees trust they will be gainful major alliance players, however in Drury they get an accomplished player and won't need to surge Andujar who could utilize flavoring with the glove and arm.

Drury, 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, has been on the Yankees' radar because of his age, isn't qualified for assertion until after the 2018 season, which implies they have four years of control, can play various positions, is a .271 hitter in 962 major group at-bats and hit a consolidated 29 homers and drove in 116 keeps running in the previous two seasons.

"He has more bat than protection, plays hard and is a solid child,'' an AL scout said of Drury. "I like the way he plays. He can hit and plays his (butt) off. I don't think about his guard yet he is a victor.''

Without a genuine reinforcement for first baseman Greg Bird, it's conceivable Drury could fill in at the position. He has played only one amusement at first in the majors, however appeared in 55 diversions at first in 2012 in the minors.

Drury has showed up in 128 major class diversions at a respectable halfway point, 40 at third, one at short, 61 in left field and 32 in right field, which could mean one of two things: he doesn't have a genuine position or that the Diamondbacks cherished the flexibility. The 93 recreations in the outfield are decent involvement, however the Yankees' outfield is a swarmed house.

Solak, a moment round pick from Louisville in the 2016 draft, played at Tampa (Single-An) and Trenton (Double-A) last year and batted a joined .297 with a .384 on-base rate, .835 OPS, 12 homers, 53 RBIs and was 14-for-19 in stolen bases in 130 recreations. He handed 23 over January.

With Torres, thought about a best prospect by many, being prepped for a respectable halfway point, and Tyler Wade and Thairo Estrada in the framework and equipped for playing the position, the Yankees managed from a zone of quality.

Widener, a right-hander, was 7-8 with a 3.39 ERA in 27 amusements (all begins) for Tampa a year ago. He was a twelfth round pick from the University of South Carolina in 2016.
