YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 After nearly leading the Appalachian League in hitting in 2011, Drury took a step back in the Sally. He's a big-framed third baseman with a quick swing and above-average raw power potential. His flaw is an overly aggressive approach at the plate. Advanced pitchers are able to pick him apart, as they did last season. There’s still plenty of time for Drury to get back on the horse, but he’ll need to become more selective to live up to his potential.
2012 The Braves converted Drury, their 13th-round pick from Oregon, from shortstop to third base and watched as he struggled in his first exposure to professional ball, striking out in more than a quarter of his at-bats. He took a step forward in 2011 and almost won the Appalachian League batting title. Above-average bat speed combined with a quick swing on a big frame can lead to some damaging blows, and Drury has the potential to turn into a nice power hitter. In the interim, he still needs to work on his approach, and there is every reason to believe he will, given his high marks in makeup.
