Ned Yost said after Billy Butler tore it up against Cleveland last weekend that the designated hitter would be in the lineup for the Royals as long as he continued to hit.

Well, Butler did not continue to hit this week and is out of the lineup for the Thursday night game against Minnesota. Butler is hitless in the first two games of the series. His stat line sits at a mediocre .271/.323/.366.
