Royals' Drew Butera: Hits first homer of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera went 2-for-4 with home run and two RBI during Monday's win over Tampa Bay.

The two RBI were also the first of the season for Butera, and he's sporting an underwhelming .208/.208/.375 slash line. The backup backstop has started just seven games this season and projects to remain a low priority in all fantasy settings.

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

Butera is starting at catcher and hitting ninth Sunday against the Rangers, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

Salvador Perez was scratched from Saturday's lineup due to neck stiffness, so Butera was a late addition. Until Perez is ready to return, look for Butera to see an increase in playing time. Butera has played in five games this season, during which he's gone 1-for-10.

Royals' Drew Butera: Goes hitless in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera, making just his second start of the season, went 0-for-3 with a strikeout and left one man on base Sunday against the Angels.

The seldomly-used catcher is the only hitter on the Royals active roster that hasn't reached base yet this season. Butera is 0-for-7 with two strikeouts while appearing in just three contests (once as a pinch hitter) so far this year. With one of the game's best backstops, Salvador Perez, ahead of him on the depth chart, Butera's only fantasy value comes in the form of an extreme punt play on the days he starts.

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.
