Royals done sitting Billy Butler


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) Though Billy Butler looked like he may have lost his DH job to Josh Willingham for the first couple weeks after Eric Hosmer returned from a hand injury, Royals manager Ned Yost told the Kansas City Star Sunday that the longtime Royal will play every day the rest of the way.

However, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, "We're going to wait to see if he can help us any time in the course of this week because we're still fighting." Beltran last played on Friday, serving as the Yankees' designated hitter against the Blue Jays.

"I'm in a pretty good spot; I took some swings off the tee, some soft toss," said Konerko. "I definitely could feel it in there. It's a little sore today but it's soreness that I know. It's not that I went backward. It was expected. So I think now, for me, I have no worries that I'm going to get back out there this week."
