Drury says he has batted in games with blurred vision
NEW YORK (AP) — 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 anti-inflammatory 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.”
