Heyman: Royals thought unlikely to pick up Billy Butler's option
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Royals are thought unlikely to pick up the $12-million option on designated hitter Billy Butler, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

Butler hit .271 with nine home runs and 66 RBI during the regular season. The team may get away from having a full-time designated hitter next year and rather have increased versatility on the roster.
