SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) After a season on the go, Brandon Drury is happy to know he'll primarily play second base this season for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
He appeared in 62 games in left field as a rookie last year, 32 in right, 29 at third, 16 at second and even one at first.
"It will be a piece of cake for him this year by just focusing on one position," said teammate Chris Owings, who split time last year mostly between shortstop and center. "It's nice when you can go out and just take groundballs at second base. You can work on being in a shift one day. You can work on double plays one day. If he can focus on that versus worrying about, `Am I playing left or right or second or third?' then I think he's going to have a great year."
