Latest Update Chargers placed LB Donald Butler (elbow) on injured reserve Mon Dec, 15, 10:35 PM
Is an exciting offensive player with both good power and speed. Profiles as a top table-setter who can distract pitchers and provide instant offense. Makes good contact.
Flaws: : Doesn't walk enough, so he needs to become more patient in order to maximize his top-of-the-order skills. Also, he must become a more efficient runner on the bases.
The Chargers have lost their inside linebacker for the rest of the season due to an elbow dislocation. Butler struggled in 2014, but his season will end with only 73 tackles and one sack. Kavell Conner seems to be the likely favorite to replace Butler in the lineup.Analyst: Colby Conway
This seems to indicate that Butler at the very least will miss the remainder of the regular season with the Chargers refraining from ending his season in case he can suit up for the playoffs.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
The Rangers are said to be shopping Jurickson Profar and Elvis Andrus, but not Odor who actually showed some real nice promise. But he is less of a risk than Profar and is cheaper that Andrus and therefore the Rangers have no real incentive to deal him.Analyst: Howard Bender
Not much to see here. Butler doesn't put up the tackle totals expected from the top tier of linebackers, and has one sack and no forced turnovers on the year. There are better individual defensive players to target.Analyst: Paul Moses
