  • Brandon Drury Hits Grand Slam In Padres Debut

    San Diego Padres infielder Brandon Drury made his team debut on Wednesday, and he started out with a bang, launching a first-inning grand slam off Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Chad Kuhl in a 9-1 victory. Drury figures to receive steady playing time for San Diego, though it could come all over the diamond in a much deeper lineup than his old Reds team had. He stands to receive a bit of a fantasy boost in his new setup, but his .864 OPS, 21 homers, 63 runs scored, and 63 RBI is already an excellent pace.

  • Brandon Drury To Serve As Designated Hitter

    San Diego Padres infielder Brandon Drury is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Colorado Rockies. The veteran slugger was acquired by the Padres at the trade deadline on Tuesday. Although, the acquisition of Drury was overshadowed by the addition of Juan Soto and Josh Bell. Fantasy managers shouldn't overlook the impact that Drury can make in the lineup. He's hitting .274 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI through 92 games. Drury will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth versus right-hander Chad Kuhl on Wednesday. Fantasy managers will likely see Drury's value drop in San Diego, but he'll be starting for this game.

  • Padres Acquire Brandon Drury From The Reds

    The San Diego Padres are acquiring infielder Brandon Drury from the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday, according to sources. It's unclear what the Padres sent to the Reds in exchange. Drury has seen the vast majority of his playing time in Cincinnati this year on the infield, mainly at the hot corner, but he has experience in the outfield as well. The 29-year-old has had a late-career resurgence in 2022, hitting .274/.335/.520 with a career-high 20 home runs, 59 RBI, 62 runs scored and two stolen bases in 385 plate appearances and 92 games. The move to San Diego isn't good news at all for Drury's fantasy value the rest of the way, as he'll be blocked at third by Manny Machado and at second base by Jake Cronenworth, but perhaps he'll see semi-regular at-bats in the outfield, where he has some experience as well.

  • Brandon Drury Not Certain To Be Traded

    Cincinnati Reds infielder Brandon Drury, who is drawing interest from multiple teams at the trade deadline, isn't certain to be traded this summer. The Reds might be interested in exploring an extension with Drury, who turns 30 on Aug. 21 and hit his career-high 20th home run as a pinch-hitter on Sunday. The Reds could also trade him and re-sign him as a free agent in the offseason, too. But if they deal him, they would lose their right to negotiate with him exclusively until the market opens. The 29-year-old is having a late-career resurgence in Cincinnati in 2022, hitting .275/.336/.523 with an .859 OPS, 20 round-trippers, 59 RBI, 62 runs scored and two stolen bases in 381 plate appearances over 91 games.

  • Brandon Drury Has Hot Trade Market

    Cincinnati Reds third baseman Brandon Drury has a surprisingly hot trade market heading into the deadline. The 29-year-old is having a breakout year with the Reds. Drury is slashing .275/.336/.523 with 20 homers and 59 RBI in 380 plate appearances. As of right now, the Dodgers, Mariners, and Braves are all reportedly interested in Drury. He will hit free agency at the end of the season, so there is no reason for the Reds to keep him. Fantasy managers should expect Drury to be moved before the trade deadline ends. Although, his fantasy value could take a hit if he lands on a team where he doesn't get regular at-bats anymore.

  • Brandon Drury On The Bench Against Orioles

    Cincinnati Reds third baseman Brandon Drury is not in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles. Drury will take a normal day of rest after going 8-for-36 (.222) with a homer, six RBI and five runs scored in nine games since the All-Star break. On the season, he's hitting .272/.332/.513 with an .845 OPS, 19 home runs, 58 RBI, 61 runs scored and two stolen bases in 345 at-bats. Drury is a prime trade candidate with the deadline coming on Aug. 2. Donovan Solano is starting at third base on Sunday and is hitting second against Orioles right-hander Austin Voth. Solano will be a DFS sleeper worth considering. He's gone 10-for-23 (.435) with a homer and seven RBI in seven games over the last two weeks.
