Billy Butler to play more first base
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals designated hitter Billy Butler is expected to play more first base this season, according to the Kansas City Star.

Manager Ned Yost told Butler at the beginning of camp that he wanted him to get more work at first base. "I want to try to give him as much opportunity to play over there as I can," Yost said. Yost added that he's seen Butler work harder than ever before in order to prepare at first.

Last season, Butler hit .289/.374/.412 in 582 at-bats.

Billy Butler probably won't be traded
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though Royals designated hitter Billy Butler is once again rumored to be a trade candidate this offseason, a club official told The Kansas City Star he's unlikely to be dealt.

"Do the math. We're looking to add offense," the club official said. "If we trade Butler, we'd have to add a lot of offense. It would have to be a series of moves to do that, and that's hard to do. Plus, there's just not that much available offense out there."

Butler, who is signed through 2014 with a team option for 2015, hit .289 with 15 homers and a .787 OPS in 2013.
