Blue Jays discover Brandon Drury fractured his hand with Yankees before trade

The Blue Jays announced Tuesday they have placed infielder Brandon Drury on the 10-day disabled list after they discovered he had a fracture in his left hand.

Toronto acquired Drury from the Yankees at the trade deadline along with prospect Billy McKinney for left-handed pitcher J.A. Happ.

However, they did not realize Drury had a broken hand.

According to SportsNet, the Blue Jays knew Drury had a left-hand injury, but the Yankees believed it was a bone bruise from a hit by pitch a couple of days before Toronto acquired him. 

Drury will have a cast put on his hand for two weeks and he will be re-evaluated after that. He was batting .154 in eight games since Toronto acquired him.

The Blue Jays have recalled infielder Richard Ureña in a corresponding move.
