Brandon Drury Optioned to Make Space for Miller

MLB: Houston Astros at Arizona Diamondbacks Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Drury went 2-for-4 and scored two runs in today’s game, but it wasn’t enough to save his spot on the roster, as the Diamondbacks announced after the game.

Kind of too bad for Drury, who had gone through a rough patch, but stuck it out and was maybe starting to adjust. There’s a chance, though, that he doesn’t actually go to Reno; David Peralta is still struggling with a stiff back, and it may require a DL stint. If that happens, Drury might be right back with the Diamondbacks, or the club might opt for Socrates Brito, who has started to hit again after a rough time when he was first sent back to Reno, posting a .335 average since May 5th.

Either way, Drury’s numbers, with an OPS of .760, might have dropped after a good start, but he did very well considering that he was moved around positions regularly.
