Latest Update Butler drives in two for KC Wed Oct, 22, 11:41 PM
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 tallied his two RBIs during the five run sixth inning for Kansas City. Butler's single scored Lorenzo Cain, and was the first strike of the inning. Butler is an important part to the Royals' success and he is delivering for them right now.Analyst: Colby Conway
Country Breakfast must have had his eggs runny this morning as he stole his first base since 2012 and also scored from first on a triple. It was a tough season for Billy as he hit a career low .271 with 57 runs, nine home runs and 66 RBI. Butler is going to be a free agent this off-season and should be a cheap signing given his level of production and limited capabilities in the field. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
After a painfully slow start to the season, Butler has raised his average to .269 for the year. He knocked in 64 RBIs, to go along with a mediocre nine home runs. He should bounce back closer to his 2013 numbers next year.Analyst: Colby Conway
Better late than never, right? Butler has been vastly disappointing this season, but he had a nice night at the plate on Tuesday. He is batting just .152 in September, but hopefully for Kansas City's sake, this is the beginning of a hot streak.Analyst: David Kerr
