Drury says he has bat­ted with blurred vi­sion

The Sault Star - - SPORTS -

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.
