Latest Update Billy Butler plates two runs in win   Thu Aug, 14, 09:36 PM

Better late than never for Butler, who has been putrid for most of the season. Everything about Butler's game has been down all season long and if he doesn't increase his power over the final six weeks, he could end the season with less than ten home runs. He stock has certainly fallen headed into next year.Analyst: David Kerr

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 is not in the Royals starting lineup on Thursday
  • Butler looks to be getting a day of rest after playing in twelve games since the All-Star break and 23 in the month of July. He has hit .225 in 40 at bats since the break, with two home runs and five RBI. That brings the disappointing designated hitter's home run total to five for the season.Analyst:

    Billy Butler one of few bright spots Sunday for KC
  • Big Boy Butler finished the weekend off in style going 6-for-9 with two home runs, a double, five RBI, and three runs scored after going hitless in the series opener against the Indians Thursday. As big of a weekend as it was for Butler and the Royals, who took three of the four games against Cleveland, the Royals DH has just five home runs on the year with a meh slash line of .273/.326/.370.

    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
