Newly acquired Drury now front-runner to play 3B for Yankees

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Newly acquired Brandon Drury is the now the favorite to be the starting third baseman for the New York Yankees.

The Yankees acquired Drury from Arizona on Tuesday night in a three-team deal that also involved Tampa Bay. Drury played mostly second base for Arizona, but came up through the minors at third.

"Nothing is going to be given to anybody, but going into the process he's going to have a leg up given the fact that he's had two years of major league experience that he can fall back on plus postseason experience," Yankees general manager Cashman said Wednesday. "I think all those things will serve him well."
