|Eddie Butler wins one Saturday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/20/14) Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler turned in a strong start Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
Butler allowed one run on five hits over six innings. He struck out one and walked one during the outing. A home run was the only blemish for Butler. In the fifth inning, Jake Lamb belted a solo shot off Butler. He would put another man on during the frame, but managed to get out of it. Butler gave up a single to open the sixth inning, but was able to erase any trouble with a double-play. He was pulled after throwing 81 pitches.
With the win, Butler improved to 1-1. He’ll take on the Dodgers in his next start.

(9/16/14) Rockies pitching prospect Eddie Butler will start Saturday against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com reported Monday.
Butler will be part of a six-man rotation for the final few weeks of the season, following the completion of the Double-A Tulsa season. Butler finished the season with a 3.99 ERA in 117 1/3 innings in the minors, and he allowed six earned runs in 5 1/3 innings in the majors before suffering a shoulder injury.

(7/19/14) Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler was recalled from his rehab assignment Saturday and immediately optioned to Double-A Tulsa, MLB.com reports.
"It's just giving him time to get sharp," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "He's been out for awhile. He's had a couple of rehab starts, but we're just giving him time to get everything in order, then he'll be ready to come back and help us. We want to make sure he's sharp and ready to go into a Major League game and succeed. He's a very young pitcher. He's only made one Major League start. We want to make sure he's in position to succeed."
Butler surrendered six earned runs in 5 1/3 innings during a rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs Friday. Weiss added Saturday that Butler won't necessarily pitch at Colorado Springs before returning to the majors.

(7/13/14) Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler began a minor-league rehab assignment Saturday with Class A Modesto.
Butler allowed three runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings of work. He will likely make two rehab starts before rejoining the team July 22. His final rehab start would take place July 17 at Triple-A.
|Eddie Butler to make his first rehab start Saturday |

(7/12/14) Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler will make his first rehab start Saturday, according to MLB.com.
Butler is attempting to come back from a shoulder issue. His first start will come at Class A Modesto. He's set to throw about 60 pitches. The club wants Butler to make two rehab starts before rejoining the team July 22. His final rehab start would take place July 17 at Triple-A.
|Eddie Butler has been nothing short of exceptional since the Rockies drafted in the first round (46th overall) in 2012. After going 7-1 with a 2.13 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in rookie ball in '12, the right-handed was even more impressive at three stops in the minors last season. He went 9-5 with a 1.80 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 28 starts between low Class A, high Class A and Double-A. Butler also struck out 143 batters in 149 2/3 innings. Butler did have some command issues, walking 3.1 batters per nine innings, but he balanced it out by allowing just 5.8 hits per nine innings last season. The scouts rave about Butler's four-pitch arsenal. They consider his fastball, slider and changeup to all be plus pitches, and his curveball is above average. Butler can reach the high 90s and his fastball sits in the mid-90s, but his best pitch might be his changeup, which bottoms out like a splitter and is thrown with great arm speed, according to Baseball America. The Rockies bolstered their rotation in the offseason, so Butler is ticketed for the high minors. He could be major-league ready in 2014, but he's still more of a long-term Fantasy keeper.
