Drury will begin playing first base twice a week for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Conor Foley of The Times-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees have acknowledged that Drury deserves to be in the majors, but there's currently no room for the infielder with Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres both mashing for the big club. He'll get some reps at first base moving forward in an attempt to provide him with another path to the majors. If Drury takes well to first base, he could potentially replace Neil Walker -- who is hitting just .204/.280/.286 this season -- on the big-league roster in a utility role.

Drury is taking extra time to report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in order to make a pair of visits to a specialist regarding his neck, The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The visits are not related to any setback but are instead merely a part of his recovery. The specialist is a chiropractor and acupuncturist who has been working with Drury after it was discovered that his severe migraines were related to an irritated tendon in his neck. The infielder is considered healthy, but the nature of the injury suggests that it will require continued maintenance, and with the recent emergence of both Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres, Drury is likely to see his role significantly reduced when he eventually returns to the majors.

Drury (impaired vision) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Aaron Boone recently said that Drury wouldn't be ready until after the team's upcoming road trip that ends May 25, and with time running out on his rehab assignment, the Yankees decided to activate Drury and send him to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to continue his rehab. It's unclear if Drury will return to his role as the Yankees' primary third baseman once ready, as prospect Miguel Andujar has held his own at the hot corner in his absence, hitting .282/.296/.458 with three homers across 33 games. The 25-year-old has been sidelined since early April with impaired vision and migraines.

Manager Aaron Boone said Drury (impaired vision) is "not all the way there yet" and won't return during the club's upcoming road trip that lasts until May 25, Coley Harvey of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though general manager Brian Cashman stated that Drury could return "sooner rather than later" earlier this week, it appears as though that is no longer the case, at least for his return at the major-league level. Considering Drury's minor-league rehab assignment expires Tuesday, it's not yet clear what the Yankees intend to do. Either way, with the success of Miguel Andujar at third base and Gleyber Torres at the keystone, the team will have to make some difficult roster decisions once Drury is ready to re-enter the fold.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Monday that Drury (blurred vision) could return from the 10-day disabled list "sooner rather than later," though an exact date wasn't specified, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Drury, who recently shifted his rehab assignment to Double-A Trenton, has appeared in 12 minor-league games since April 25 for two different affiliates, going a collective 14-for-39 (.359 average) with a home run in those contests. The strong showing at the plate seemingly suggests that Drury's bout with impaired vision and migraines is no longer much of a concern, but the Yankees have had little incentive to rush the veteran back with rookie Miguel Andujar thriving while logging regular at-bats at third base. Once Drury is back from the DL, manager Aaron Boone could face some tough lineup decisions, as Drury won't have a clear path to playing time at the keystone either with top prospect Gleyber Torres shining in an everyday role at that position since earning a promotion April 22.

Drury (impaired vision) will not return from the disabled list during the Yankees' series with the Astros this week, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Drury is reportedly feeling better and playing regularly with the team's Triple-A affiliate, though the Yankees seem to be willing to wait things out a little longer. The strong play of youngsters Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres is also likely playing into this decision, making it seem as if the Yankees are unwilling to have Drury usurp either of those two infielders for playing time. Regardless, it seems like the earliest Drury will be able to return is Friday when the Yankees begin a nine-game homestead.

Drury (impaired vision) is participating in a rehab assignment at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but remains without an estimated return date, Marc Carig of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since beginning his rehab assignment on April 24, Drury has played in four games. Over said outings he's gone 6-for-13 (.462) and scored three runs. However, it's unclear when the Yankees are looking to bring him off the disabled list. It remains to be seen what Drury's role will be once he returns to full health, as top prospects Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar have been sound options since being promoted to the big club.

Drury (impaired vision) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment Wednesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Erik Boland of Newsday reports that the third baseman's vision issue was due to a problem with a tendon in his neck. Drury is feeling better after getting stimuli treatment and should hopefully get back into game action without issue Wednesday.

Drury (impaired vision) said he is still dealing with blurred vision and migraines, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Drury was prescribed an anti inflammatory by a migraine doctor and is still awaiting test results from a series of examinations he underwent last week. He said his symptoms worsen with physical activity, but he's hoping his most recent round of testing will help resolve the issue once and for all. That said, he remains without a concrete return date.

Drury underwent numerous tests Monday in an effort to understand what's been causing his impaired vision and migraines, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although specific results of the tests have not been revealed, manager Aaron Boone said that the team has received good news from the examinations. Until Drury is ready to return, Miguel Andujar is expected to continue receiving regular time at the hot corner.
