|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|

|Billy Butler out, Danny Valencia in Wednesday lineup |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/14) The Royals have benched designated hitter Billy Butler on Wednesday against the White Sox in favor of Danny Valencia. Butler continues to struggle, particularly in regard to his power numbers. He has just one home run since June 14 and three doubles since June 19. His .267/.320/.347 stat line pales in comparison to those he has compiled in previous seasons.
|Danny Valencia cannot return Tuesday |

(7/22/14) Royals infielder Danny Valencia was unable to return to the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, after he was hit by a pitch on the left hand Monday. He is day to day at this point.
|X-rays negative on Danny Valencia's hand |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/22/14) Royals infielder Danny Valencia underwent X-rays Monday after getting hit on the left hand by a pitch but the tests came back negative, the Kansas City Star reports.
Valencia went 1 for 2 and drove in the team's only run of the the game before being removed. He has hit .295/.342/.400 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 105 at-bats.
|An offseason trade sent Danny Valencia from the Orioles to the Royals, where the 29-year-old will serve as a bench bat. Valencia has a career .263 batting average, and has gotten more than 300 at-bats just once in his career (2011 with Minnesota, when he hit .246 with 15 home runs). He has finished two of his four seasons with an average over .300, including 2013, when Valencia hit .204 over 161 at-bats. There is some power in his bat, but he'll likely be stuck with a half-season's worth of plate appearances in the utility role, rendering him all but useless in most formats. With third base being deep this season, Valencia's Draft Day value tops out as a reserve pick in AL-only Roto leagues.
