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 fractured the fifth metatarsal on his right hand, down where the hand meets the wrist. Happened as he checked his swing and was hit by a pitch, a couple of days before the #Yankees traded him to #Bluejays

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.
