Royals' Drew Butera: Set for decreased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers, 610 Sports Radio reports.

Butera had been starting semi-regularly to start the season, but he'll move back into a bench role with Salvador Perez back from the disabled list. The 34-year-old can be dropped in nearly every league now given how frequently Perez suits up behind the plate.

Royals' Drew Butera: Sits first game of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is not in the lineup for the first game of the doubleheader against the Tigers on Friday, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

Cameron Gallagher will start behind the dish in Butera's place. The two will likely split catching duties Friday, each starting one game. With Salvador Perez nearing a return from his knee injury, one of the two catchers is likely to be sent down soon, but Butera's job is presumably the safe one, as he's been the Royals' backup catcher for two and a half years.

Royals' Drew Butera: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is out of the lineup for the first game of the Royals' doubleheader against the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

With the teams playing a double-header, it's likely that Butera and Cameron Gallagher will each start one game behind the plate. With Salvador Perez (knee) nearing a return from the disabled list, Butera's brief window of playing time is about to come to an end. He did very little to stake a claim for more time, hitting .185 in nine games, though that was to be expected, as he owns a career .202 batting average over parts of nine seasons.
