Drury, meanwhile, has fallen out of favor with several teams in recent seasons. After spending 2015-17 as a member of the Diamondbacks, with whom he sometimes mixed the league’s average offensive production and defensive versatility, they traded him to the Yankees. Drury’s stay in New York was short-lived, for he produced terrible results there. The Yankees offered him to the Blue Jays in the summer of 2018 for left-handed JA Happ, but Drury’s numbers continued to soar in Toronto.
Since heading north of the border, Drury has totaled 525 plateau appearances and hit a horrific .208 / .253 / .353, which is a big part of why the Blue Jays cut him and why no other team claimed it. He will now report to the Jays alternative training site.
