Butler started Friday and went 1-for-4 in a 19-12 victory over the Orioles.

Butler made his first start for the Red Sox since he was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket last week as Sandy Leon started the last six games before getting the night off. With a doubleheader Saturday, Butler will likely start one of those games, which figures to be his final start while up with Boston. Blake Swihart (hamstring) is expected to be activated for the Red Sox's two-game series in Philadelphia beginning on Tuesday.
