Butera was sent from Kansas City to Colorado along with cash considerations in exchange for Jerry Vasto on Friday.

Butera will see a major upgrade in his home park, but the difference between Coors Field and Kauffman Stadium won't be enough to salvage the veteran's .188/.259/.289 batting line. He's also not likely to see much more playing time. While he's no longer stuck behind a catcher who plays as often as Salvador Perez does, he now appears to be the third catcher on the Rockies' depth chart behind Tony Wolters and Chris Iannetta.
