Drury logged his second three hit game of the season on Sunday and his first since the extra innings affair on the 24th of April. He also launched his fifth homer of the season and raised his average to .315 from .294 before the game. Drury is expected to get more playing time coming up as he gets time at third, left, and right. Four of his five homers have come in the last seven games along with a .346 AVG and .885 SLG, six RBI, and seven runs scored. Tuesday’s series opener against Justin Nicolino and the Marlins looms next and though he has never faced the Miami starter he is hitting .276 (8-for-29) off southpaws this season.
Miller has been an abject disaster in Arizona to this point and it didn’t get any better on Sunday as he lasted just 3 2/3. There has been a lot wrong so far between his 8.49 ERA, 1.97 WHIP, 19:19 K:BB ratio, or that he has pitched just 23 1/3 innings over six starts. With his start to the season there is no reason that he should be started until he proves that he has turned it around significantly.
