Royals | Billy Butler sitting

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 08:25:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals DH Billy Butler (rest) is receiving the day off Wednesday, July 23. INF Danny Valencia is replacing him as designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Deactivate Butler in your daily transactions. Though Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana has been tough this year, Valencia, a platoon tool, could be a sneaky daily play against the southpaw.

Royals | Billy Butler hoping to stay in KC

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 19:12:27 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Billy Butler said Monday, July 21, that he is willing to renegotiate his deal for next season in order to say with the team. He has a club option for 2015 for $12.5 million, and since he has struggled this season it seems unlikely the team will not exercise that option. The buyout for the deal is $1 million. "If the option doesn't work, I'd be more than happy to renegotiate in any type of way. I've always said that," Butler said.

Royals | Billy Butler willing to rework deal

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 01:10:54 -0700

Although Kansas City Royals DH Billy Butler believes his team should pick up the $12 million contract option on him for 2015, he is willing to renegotiate if it means staying with the Royals. "My numbers throughout my contract suggest they should (pick it up)," Butler said. "Maybe not the way I've necessarily played this year, but that's the reason you play a full 162 games. The evaluation is there. That's the reason why you have a track record."

Royals | Alex Gordon likely headed for fifth spot

Wed, 05 Feb 2014 21:12:17 -0800

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is likely headed out of the leadoff spot and to the fifth spot following the acquisition of OF Norichika Aoki. "You never know what's going to happen with injuries (or) how people are going to play," Gordon said. "We're going to iron all that out in spring training." Manager Ned Yost has said Gordon will fall into the fifth spot behind 2B Omar Infante, 1B Eric Hosmer and DH Billy Butler.

Fantasy Tip: A move for Gordon to the fifth spot will provide many more RBI opportunities. His runs scored might take a hit, but his power numbers should rise. His fantasy appeal is on the way up batting in the middle of the order.
