Jon Heyman reports that the Blue Jays and infielder Brandon Drury have agreed on a one-year, $2.05 million contract for the 2020 season, avoiding arbitration. Drury was in his second year of arbitration eligibility.

Drury, 27, posted a meager .218/.262/.380 slash line along with 15 home runs and 41 RBI over 447 plate appearances this past season. He played all over the diamond, including the corner outfield. He spent most of his time, however, at third base.

Drury is likely to play a similar role in 2020, going wherever the Jays need him to go.

The Jays have two outstanding arbitration cases remaining with Ken Giles and Matt Shoemaker.
