"He’s continuing to throw," Girardi said, per The Journal News. "He has progressed and he has thrown more and more distance as we’ve went on, and he’s done some outfield drills early. I don’t think it’s too far off. I don’t know if it will happen next week, but after that, I think it’s a possibility."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Royals first baseman Billy Butler went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 7-5 win over the Indians Saturday.

Butler hit his second home run in as many days Saturday, and he made his fifth appearance at first base over the past week as Eric Hosmer continues to nurse a hand injury. Butler has hit .268/.322/.363 with five home runs and 40 RBI in 369 at-bats.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Embattled Billy Butler blasts off to play hero in victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Royals designated hitter Billy Butler has lost his full-time starting job, so he took out his frustration on a baseball in the eighth inning of a Friday night win against Cleveland.

Butler ripped a John Axford pitch an estimated 455 feet into the left field seats for his fourth home run. The two-run rocket broke a 4-4 tie and proved to be the game-winner. The pinch-hit gave him just four hits in his last 24 at-bats.


Carlos Beltran goes deep in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran provided some power Friday, in a 6-4 win over the Blue Jays.

Beltran had just one hit in the game, but he mad it count, as he helped spark a rally in third inning. He slugged a solo home run, his 11th of the season, and his lone contribution to the win amid a pair of strikeouts.

Beltran has struggled to get his bat going this season, while also dealing with a variety of injuries. He is hitting .222/.275/.414 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 261 at-bats.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Frequent benchings begin as Billy Butler out of Friday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Despite the continued absence of injured Eric Hosmer from the Royals lineup Friday against Cleveland, designated hitter Billy Butler is not playing. That indicates how far he has fallen in the eyes of Ned Yost.

Yost has already announced that Butler will be losing playing time. The one-time slugger has just one hit in his last 15 at-bats and owns a stat line of .264/.319/.343 that pales in comparison to those compiled in seasons past.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) A back issue will apparently not prevent David Ortiz from making his appointed rounds at designated hitter Friday for the Red Sox at Tampa Bay. He has told John Farrell that he's good to go, per Comcast Sports Net.

David Ortiz set to get back checked Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Red Sox prolific designated hitter David Ortiz will have his ailing back evaluated Friday before a determination is made about possible missed time, per the Boston Herald.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Trade doesn't change much for Kendrys Morales


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Though Kendrys Morales is certainly capable of making a real contribution in Fantasy, he didn't do it in 39 games with the Twins, batting .234 with one home run and a .584 OPS.

And now with his trade to the Mariners, he's going to Safeco Field, a park known to neutralize a hitter or two. Oh noes!

Relax. We already have an idea how Morales will perform in Seattle considering he was just there last year. Of course, you would have rather seen him go elsewhere -- like to a hitter's park for once -- but if he continues to struggle like he did with the Twins, who don't exactly play in a hitter's haven themselves, the venue won't be the reason why.

After waiting half the year to sign with a team, Morales is now paying the price. While every other player is in midseason form, he's still in spring training mode -- or just coming out of it, anyway, having hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games.

Provided the Mariners stick with him every day and don't fit him into some kind of rotation with Logan Morrison and Corey Hart, he's a good bet for some cheap power numbers down the stretch. Maybe the move to a contender will even spark something in him.


Logan Morrison, Corey Hart to platoon at first base moving forward


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) With the addition of Kendrys Morales on Thursday, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon revealed his first base plans moving forward, MLB.com reports. The team will use Morales as a designated hitter, with Logan Morrison and Corey Hart platooning at first base.

Jesus Montero called up Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Mariners infielder Jesus Montero has been called up from Triple-A Thursday.

Montero received 14 at-bats in the majors this season before being sent down to the minors. At Triple-A, he's hit .310 over 303 at-bats. The team had an open roster spot after sending Taijuan Walker to the minors Wednesday.


David Ortiz considered day-to-day


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Edwin Encarnacion, Adam Lind might skip rehab assignments


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) The Blue Jays are considering activating first baseman Edwin Encarnacion (quad) and designated hitter Adam Lind (foot) as early as Monday without the players first going on minor-league rehab assignments, reports MLB.com. "If we need 'em, we need 'em," manager John Gibbons said.

The report said no decision has been made. It's possible both players will go on rehab assignments this weekend. Encarnacion and Lind continue to work out and hit at the team's facility in Dunedin, Fla.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
