Royals' Drew Butera: Fails to produce in rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts during Friday's win in Cleveland.

The backup catcher is in an 0-for-15 slump, with his last hit coming on Aug. 19 against the Indians. With Salvador Perez, one of the game's best ahead of him, Butera is among the least used backup catchers in the game.

Royals' Drew Butera: Heads back to bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies.

With Salvador Perez (oblique) returning from the disabled list Tuesday and reclaiming duties behind the plate, Butera will settle back into his normal backup role at catcher. While Perez was sidelined for the last 15 games, Butera went 12-for-38 with four RBI and six runs.

Royals' Drew Butera: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is not in the starting lineup Sunday at home against Cleveland.

Cam Gallagher will step in behind the plate for Sunday's contest. Butera has started eight of the team's last nine games, playing in place of Salvador Perez (oblique). The latter is slated to return Tuesday or Wednesday, so Butera's run of relevance is coming to an end.

Royals' Drew Butera: Four hits in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera went 4-for-5 with two runs scored Sunday against the White Sox.

All four of Butera's hits were singles, but this performance was nonetheless able to raise his average from .245 to .270. The drop-off in power from regular catcher Salvador Perez (oblique) to Butera has been very noticeable, as the former had produced 42 extra-base hits in 391 plate appearances while the latter has just six in 125 plate appearances. Unfortunately for Kansas City, Perez looks to be at least a few more days from returning.

Royals' Drew Butera: Gets day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

As expected, Butera has taken over as the Royals' primary catcher following Salvador Perez's (oblique) placement on the disabled list, picking up starts in three of the previous four contests. With Perez facing an uncertain timetable for a return, it looks like Butera will enjoy some stability in the regular role, though he'll still be rested a couple times per week like most other top backstops around the league. Cam Gallagher will catch for Royals starter Trevor Cahill on Wednesday.
