Athletics' Billy Butler: Will see fewer starts at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Billy Butler is due to play a more limited role with the acquisition of Khris Davis, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Butler, who served in a DH role in 136 games last year for the A's, is likely to see that number drop this year. If newly acquired Khris Davis moves into the everyday left field role for the A's as expected, Coco Crisp would get a lot of starts at DH, which would severely cut into Butler's at-bats. Given his limited upside, Butler would need a full-time role to be useful in most formats, and that no longer looks like it will be the case in 2016.

A's DH Billy Butler continues strong September with another homer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Athletics designated hitter Billy Butler went 2 for 4 Saturday with two runs scored and a two-run shot, his 15th home run of the season.

He's somewhat salvaging a rough season with a big September, and Butler is now slashing .322/.379/.575 on the month with six homers and 17 RBI.

A's DH Billy Butler goes yard in win over Giants on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Athletics designated hitter Billy Butler went 1 for 3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 5-4 win over the Giants on Friday.

It's been a down season for the Athletics designated hitter, but he showed up on Friday. While Butler does have a hit in 10 of 12 games, nine of them have been a single hit effort. A first base eligible player who doesn't provide much power or an elite batting average is hard to own in almost any format.

Athletics DH Billy Butler blasts off to beat White Sox
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Finally-hot Athletics designated hitter Billy Butler cranked out a game-winning three-run homer in the ninth inning of a 4-2 victory over the White Sox on Thursday.

Butler's bat has come alive during September with seven multi-hit performances and 14 RBI. He has also reached base safely in 15 of 17 games dating back to Aug. 30 and is now smashing opposing pitching to the tune of a .368 average this month.

Athletics DH Billy Butler stays hot with three-hit Tuesday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Athletics veteran Billy Butler remained on a roll Tueday night, going 3 for 6 with three RBI.

After a brutal first five months to the season, Butler has caught fire in September, hitting .388 with a 1.106 OPS in 49 at-bats. Understandably, many owners grew frustrated and dropped Butler, but he could be a nice free agent add to try and ride the hot streak for the stretch run.
