Royals' Drew Butera: Goes hitless with strikeout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.

Butera's role remains as the Royal's backup catcher but he's made the most of the opportunities given to him as he's collected four hits -- three of them doubles -- in 13 total at bats. Given the limited game-action he sees, however, he's not a good play in any fantasy format.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Royals' Drew Butera: Still in backup catcher mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew Butera is hitting just .208 (5-for-24) this spring but remains in a battle for the backup catcher job with Tony Cruz.

It's not clear who is in the lead for the job, but Cruz could have an edge since the Kansas City Royals traded for him in the offseason.

Royals' Drew Butera: Agrees to deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew Butera agreed to a one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

A post-DFA trade sent Butera from Anaheim to Kansas City in early May. He spent the final five months on the active roster behind the ever-durable Salvador Perez, making a mere 23 starts and finishing with a .198/.266/.267 batting line in 99 plate appearances with the Royals. Offseason acquisition Tony Cruz could take Butera's backup job in the spring.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Royals catcher Salvador Perez gets a break from the field on Sunday. Perez is in the starting lineup at designated hitter for Sunday's game. 

It's Perez's second start at DH this year and first since June 30. 

Replacing Perez at catcher is Drew Butera, who gets his 12th start behind the plate and second in three games.
