Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Generates a strong line-drive swing with impressive power, despite a strange stance at the plate. Hits the ball hard to all fields. Is an excellent run-producer.
Flaws:  : Can't contribute much on defense, and is considered somewhat of a liability at first base. Doesn't run very well, either. His home-run power leaves something to be desired.

    Butler hits game-winning homer
  • Butler made the most of is only at-bat on Friday night, as he blasted a two-run home run that would eventually be enough for the Royals to pull away from the Indians. Although it was nice to see Butler go yard, odds are he wasn't in many starting lineups as his struggles at the plate continue, with Friday's homer being just his fourth of the season. He has managed a decent slash line despite his deficiencies, owning a .266/.320/.353, but a 91.3 AB/HR is just inexcusable. Unless he finds his power as we get into the heat of the summer, he should remain bench, if owned at all. Analyst: Matthew Beck

    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.Analyst: Howard Bender

  • Thu Jul, 24, 10:07 PM
    Butler will lose some time as a designated hitter moving forward.
  • 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.Analyst: David Kerr
