Brandon Drury to the DL, Richard Urena recalled

The frustrating season for Brandon Drury continues. After looking like he had finally started to figure things out in Seattle, the newly-acquired Blue Jay has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured hand.

Drury went two-for-four with an RBI double on Saturday against the Mariners but was held out of the lineup on Sunday afternoon’s series finale. It’s obviously been a frustrating season for him as he owns a .516 OPS on the season and finally got a full-time role after being dealt from New York to Toronto a couple weeks ago.

Coming up in his place will be Richard Urena who isn’t having all too great of a season himself. Urena is currently slashing a .206/.234/.305 line with Triple-A Buffalo and has a .609 career OPS in 94 plate appearances in the Majors.

    Urena has a .529 OPS in AAA!? Why even bother.

    Did they want Drury so bad for future seasons, they were good looking the other way in evaluating his pre-existing injury? Or was the front office just plain fucking incompetent for not properly evaluating the injury before confirming the trade?
