Arizona Diamondbacks: Top 10 Prospects

8. Brandon Drury 3B: The former Atlanta Braves prospect, Brand Drury, doesn’t have one excellent tool. However, he does a lot of things well. He is solid defensively at third base with soft hands and good arm strength, which will help him stick in the Major Leagues. In 2014, he hit 23 home runs, but that was in the California League, which is very hitter friendly. Drury is probably more of a 15-20 home run player, but he has time to bulk up, and playing in Arizona might give his power numbers a boost. His best tool is his ability to make solid contact, which translates close to a 60 for his hit tool on a scouting scale. Dreary could be a trade chip with Arizona already having Lamb at third base, but he has a couple years to develop, and Lamb has not proven himself yet.

ETA: 2016
