Rockies' Weiss: Two-seam fastball a 'safety net' for Eddie Butler
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Rockies manager Walt Weiss calls starting pitcher Eddie Butler's two-seam fastball a "safety net," according to The Denver Post. Butler's "safety net" was a big help during Monday's game against the Giants.
The pitch helped Butler work out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning by getting Gregor Blanco to ground out to first base. He loaded the bases again in the second inning, but once again worked out of trouble by getting Angel Pagan to ground out.
"Definitely, I go to that pitch," he said. "That's my double-play ball. As long as I can keep it low, they can't square it up, and it's a great thing."
Butler induced 11 groundball outs Monday.
"When the guys make contact, they usually hit the top of the ball," Weiss said. :Eddie created some traffic for himself, but he pitched through it. He pitched around it."
Rockies P Eddie Butler picks up first win of season Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler threw 5 1/3 innings to pick up a win over the Giants on Monday. It was his first win of the 2015 season.
Butler allowed five hits and struck out one batter, but he walked six. He lowered his ERA to 1.64.
His next start will likely be Saturday against the Dodgers.
Rockies P Eddie Butler strikes out five, gives up two runs
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler pitched 5 2/3 innings on Thursday in the team's 5-4 extra-inning victory over the Brewers.
Butler gave up two earned runs with five strikeouts and four walks on four hits. Butler looks to achieve his first win of the season in San Francisco on Tuesday.
|2014 Summary: Eddie Butler made his major league debut for the Rockies in June, but after just one start, he went to the disabled list with inflammation in his rotator cuff. Once his rehab was completed, Butler went back to Double-A Tulsa, and he stayed there for the remainder of the minor league season. Over 18 starts at Tulsa, Butler went 6-9 with a 3.58 ERA. The Rockies gave him another promotion in mid-September, after which he made two more starts. Butler posted a 6.75 ERA with Colorado, striking out only three batters in 16 innings.|
Playing time status: Butler will compete for a rotation spot this spring. Should he make the big-league club, it is very likely that he will be subjected to an innings limit.
2015 Outlook: As he showed at both the minor and major league level, Butler is not likely to be a good source of strikeouts, and his best chances for success are if he can replicate the favorable walk and ground ball rates he had put up at some of his minor league stops. Butler is worth owning in many dynasty formats, but for single-season leagues, he should only be drafted for NL-only formats.
