Athletics' Billy Butler: Breaks long-ball ice in Saturday victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butler went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 12-3 victory over the Tigers.

The 30-year-old finally went yard in 2016 on what was his 71st at-bat of the season. He did it in definitive fashion as well, as the blast traveled 443 feet to dead center field off Tigers starter Matt Boyd. However, Butler had notably gone hitless in his previous 10 at-bats and is still struggling considerably, particularly against right-handed pitching.

Athletics' Billy Butler: Not in lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler is not in the lineup Thursday against the Yankees.

Butler started four games in a row as the A's faced a string of lefty starters, but he'll return to the bench with right-hander Ivan Nova on the hill for the Yankees. On the year, Butler is hitting .303 against left-handers, compared to .133 against righties.

Athletics' Billy Butler: Not in lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rays.

Butler had started two straight games and even had a three-hit performance in Tuesday's bout to pull his batting average above the Mendoza Line, but he'll still get the day off Friday. Khris Davis will move into the DH spot for him, while Coco Crisp slots into left field for Davis.

Athletics' Billy Butler: Out of lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butler is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles.

Butler had served as the Athletics' designated hitter in three of the last four games, but that didn't really get him going, as he went 1-for-9 in those contests to drop his season batting average to .195. Manager Bob Melvin figures to rotate Butler, Mark Canha, and Coco Crisp into the lineup until one of the three starts to catch fire, limiting the at-bats for all three players in the interim.
