Royals' Drew Butera: Struggling during little action
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butera has just two starts and is batting 1-for-7 (.143) in August.

Even with starter Salvador Perez hitting just .198 since June 29, Butera is on pace for his fewest games started in a month since April, and unlike earlier in the year, he's struggling to produce offensively, going 6-for-25 with 10 strikeouts since July 1.

Royals' Drew Butera: Sees occasional starts as backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is hitting .286/.355/.518 after playing in 25 games this season.

Serving as the backup to Salvador Perez, Butera's time behind the plate is very limited. However, when called upon, Butera has managed to put together respectable numbers. He's contributed 10 runs, and of his 16 hits, nine have been for extra bases.

Royals' Drew Butera: Sluggs first homer of season Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a strikeout against Cleveland on Thursday.

Butera has seen an increase in his playing considering the quad injury of Salvador Perez, and he finally went yard for the first time this season. Butera doesn't have much value as a primary backup catcher who sees time only due to an injury, but he's making the most of his opportunities with a .306 average and 11 hits in 36 at-bats this season.

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.

Royals' Drew Butera: Will start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew Butera will draw the start at catcher in Saturday's matchup with the Indians.

Butera will replace Salvador Perez as the Kansas City Royals ' catcher Saturday, as manager Ned Yost has opted to use the game as an opportunity for rest. Perez will likely resume his role behind the plate Sunday. Butera will bat ninth in the order.
