Drury says he has batted with blurred vision
NEW YORK — Yankees infielder Brandon Drury says he has batted in big league games with blurred vision caused by migraines.
Drury has not played since April 6 and has been undergoing tests for the cause of the migraines. He resumed baseball activities before Monday’s homestand opener against Miami and said he has been put on an antiinflammatory medication. Drury said not all the test results have come back and the issues have not yet subsided.
The 25-year-old was obtained from Arizona in February and became New York’s starting third baseman.
Drury says “I want nothing more than to go out there and play baseball with a clear vision and a clear head.”
He adds: “It’s something I’ve battled, pretty much all the time, especially with physical activity, whether it’s a workout or playing ball or whatever it is. It gets worse with activity.”
Through eight games with New York, Drury is batting .217 with one home run and four RBI.
