Raul Ibanez is a lefty and will be hitting DH tonight against the Rangers right handed pitcher Colby Lewis. Butler will just have to sit this one out. Analyst: Mike Mohr

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.

    Billy Butler went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during the Royals' 6-3 win over the Rangers on Friday.
  • August has been a very nice month for Butler as he's hit safely in 16 of his last 18 games. He's only got three home runs and 12 RBI, but he hasn't been hitting for power at all this year so expecting him to suddenly jack a bunch of taters is a bit on the unrealistic side. He'll continue to play first base until Eric Hosmer comes back, but if Hosmer does return with a fair amount of games to go, we could see a time-share between Butler and Josh Willingham.Analyst: Howard Bender

  • 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

    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:
