Royals' Drew Butera: Set to join Team Italy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera will leave spring camp to join Team Italy for the World Baseball Classic, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

Butera's status for the WBC was up in the air after he was diagnosed with a minor oblique strain last week, but appears good to go after playing in Tuesday's Cactus League game. The decision was to be expected if the 33-year-old felt healthy, as his father serves as a coach on the team. Italy opens pool play Thursday in Mexico.

Royals' Drew Butera: Will catch in Tuesday's Cactus League game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera will start at catcher and bat seventh in the order in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Reds, 610 Sports Radio Kansas City reports.

Butera has been bothered by an oblique strain in the early stages of spring training, but it looks like he's since healed up and is ready to step back in behind the plate. The 33-year-old is slated to open the season as the top backup to Salvador Perez.

Royals' Drew Butera: Unsure about WBC status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera (oblique) is unsure about his World Baseball Classic status and will be re-evaluated next week, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

Butera missed this past week of camp with the strain and it appeared the absence was simply precautionary. However, the veteran catcher's status is up in the air for the WBC, where he is expected to represent Italy. Keep tabs on the situation over the coming days.

Royals' Drew Butera: Diagnosed with minor oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera (oblique) is expected to miss a couple more days after incurring a minor Grade 1 strain of his left oblique, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

The backup catcher injured the muscle Sunday and already sat out Monday, but the Royals don't seem overly concerned with the veteran's absence. Manager Ned Yost even went as far to say that the days of rest were simply precautionary. Butera should be good to go by the end of the week at the latest as long as everything goes as planned.

There's no word regarding the severity of Butera's injury, but more information should be available in the coming days. Once he's healthy, Butera will be set to continue his job as the backup to Salvador Perez.
