The Diamondbacks also acquired outfielder Steven Souza, who hit 30 home runs last season, from Tampa Bay.
On the Yankees' side of things, Drury, 25, fills a need for infield depth at second and third. With the Rays trading away players left and right, Arizona pounced on Souza and his 30 home runs from a season ago.
"This guy can play", the scout said of Drury per Randy Miller of NJ.com.
Souza Jr., 28, was honored with the Don Zimmer Award, given to the Rays Most Valuable Player, by the Tampa Bay Chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America last season.
A career.236 hitter, Souza has averaged 21 home runs and almost 12 steals over the past three seasons. The 23-year-old right-hander finished the 2017 season in High-A ball.
"He became a lot more consistent of a player previous year", he said on 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station's Burns & Gambo Tuesday.

According to United Kingdom experts, people should keep their homes well ventilated and use liquid cleaners instead of sprays. They suggesetd that this may be because men's lungs are less susceptible to the impact of cleaning chemicals.
The move was part of a three-team trade with the New York Yankees.
Drury had a nice season for the D-Backs a year ago and can play a number of positions. He's also logged time in the outfield, playing both left and right field.
"He is someone I think the industry has valued for a while because I know we have", Cashman said.
Before the trade, touted third baseman prospect Miguel Andujar seemingly had a realistic shot to win the job this spring even though he has just five games of big-league experience, including six innings at thir base. He was traded by the Brewers along with outfielder Mitch Haniger to the Diamondbacks at the 2014 trade deadline in exchange for outfielder Gerardo Parra.
Drury and the Yankees have the same aspirations for 2018. Drury can play multiple positions including first base where he can backup Greg Bird.
If he can do those things and continue to produce at the plate, the Yankees can catch lightning in a bottle with Drury and have another great young player to add to its core of young stars for the next few years.
