Royals' Drew Butera: Doubles, drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera went 1-for-3 with three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Cubs.

Butera opened up the scoring with a two-run, bases-loaded double in the second inning, then later plated another on a sacrifice fly. The 34-year-old has started four of the club's last five games -- two at catcher and two at first base -- but he likely won't see regular playing time down the stretch backing up one of the premiere backstops in the league in Salvador Perez.

Royals' Drew Butera: Hits solo home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday against the Rangers.

Butera took advantage of a rare starting opportunity by hitting his first home run of the season in the second inning off left-hander Cole Hamels. He has shown very little at the plate through 72 at-bats this season, as he entered Sunday's start with just a .278 slugging percentage.

Royals' Drew Butera: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Cardinals.

Butera came through with a clutch, two-run single with the bases loaded to drive in the winning runs in the 10th inning. The 34-year-old will continue to be used sparingly while backing up one of the more reliable catchers in the league in Salvador Perez.

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.
