Billy Butler is not in the Royals starting lineup on Friday.

Butler is just 1-for-15 over his last five games and manager Ned Yost said that he will lose playing time moving forward due to the lack of power and the prolonged slumps. With Eric Hosmer also out, Raul Ibanez will be at first base on Friday with Norichika Aoki serving as the designated hitter.

Greg Holland and Wade Davis could get a day off Friday after pitching three straight days.

Both have been used extensively this season and both seemed to labor through their work Thursday. Should they be granted a day off, Aaron Crow and Kelvin Herrera would be in-line for late-game work.

Greg Holland was charged with just his second blown-save of the season after allowing one run on two hits and one walk in the ninth inning of Thursday's 2-1 victory over the Indians.

Danny Duffy tossed seven scoreless innings allowing just two hits while striking out seven batters but did not factor into the decision in Thursday's win over the Indians.

Billy Butler is going to lose time at DH in the coming days, manager Ned Yost says. Danny Valencia and Raul Ibanez will get reps there.

As well he should. Butler has been an absolute bust this year and deserves to ride the pine a few times per week. While he has raised his average up to .266, Butler has just three home runs on the season. At this rate, he will finish with less than ten, and that is completely unacceptable for a full-time designated hitter.

Eric Hosmer will not swing a bat on Thursday. He said he will be more cautious about returning this time.

He won't swing a bat Thursday and depending on how he feels Friday morning, he'll take another stab at it. Consider him day-to-day for now with a hand injury.

Eric Hosmer (hand) is not in the Royals starting lineup on Thursday.

After missing games Monday and Tuesday, Hosmer tried to play Wednesday but was forced to leave the game because he was having issues gripping the bat. He'll take a seat again Thursday and the team will re-evaluate him and decide whether or not a DL stint is going to be necessary. Consider him day-to-day for now.
