Sources: Angels, Brandon Drury agree to 2-year, $17 million deal

Utilityman Brandon Drury and the Los Angeles Angels agreed on a two-year, $17 million contract, sources told ESPN on Tuesday, adding the Silver Slugger winner to a lineup that already acquired outfielder Hunter Renfroe and infielder Gio Urshela this winter.

Drury, 30, won the award after a breakout 2022 in which he hit .263/.320/.492 with 28 home runs and 87 RBIs. Drury’s versatility is his hallmark, as he played all four infield positions and right field this year.

This one might be winning by losing.

Yeah, Drury had 3.0 of his 3.6 career WAR in 2022, at age 29.

As a lifelong Red Sox fan, I find them being grouped with such esteemed organisations to reflect a sad, sad time in their history....

I was under the impression that Drury was just terrible defensively, wiping out his OK offense. But apparently that's only true at 3B; at 2B, where he's spent about half his innings, he seems to be average defensively. Yet teams keep dropping him back at 3B. The Padres did use him more at 2B for obvious reasons but he hasn't had significant time there since 2017 ... yes, OK, he hasn't really had significant time aywhere but you know what I mean. Anyway, maybe if the Angels use him mainly 2B/1B/DH, they can get their money's worth.
