|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/9/15) The Rockies optioned starting pitcher Eddie Butler to Triple-A Alburquerque on Tuesday to clear a roster spot for outfielder Kyle Parker.
Butler is headed to the minors to iron out some of his problems after allowing six runs in 5 1/3 innings in his latest start against the Marlins. Butler is 2-5 with a 5.87 ERA in his last eight starts.
Rockies SP Eddie Butler struggles in loss on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/6/15) Rockies starter Eddie Butler struggled against the Marlins on Friday. Butler surrendered six runs on 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out three, falling to 3-6 on the year.
Butler was hit early and often. He gave up two runs in the second inning, and then served up a mammoth home run to Giancarlo Stanton in the third. He gave up another run in the fifth and two more in the sixth before getting yanked.
Butler's ERA rose to 4.80 after the rough outing. He'll look to turn things around in his next start, currently scheduled for Wednesday at home against the Cardinals.
Rockies SP Eddie Butler beats Phillies on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/30/15) Rockies starter Eddie Butlerwas solid in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Phillies. Butler, who was a last-minute substitution for Jorge De La Rosa, limited the Phillies' offense to just one run on four hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out three, as he kept the Phillies off the bases for most of the game.
"Attacked the zone, got early contact, let the guys make some plays," Butler said, per the Denver Post. "And then our guys score some runs. They were hitting the ball around the park."
The only run he gave up came on a first-inning RBI double from Ryan Howard. Butler (3-5) lowered his ERA to 4.22 with Saturday's quality performance. Butler managed to induce 11 groundball outs.
"We wanted to attack guys with the sinker. It worked out," Butler said. "We got a lot of groundballs, let the infield have some fun."
He's scheduled to make his next start on Wednesday at home against the Dodgers.
SP Jorge De La Rosa a no-go Saturday for Rockies
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/30/15) A cut to the middle finger has Rockies scheduled Saturday starter Jorge De La Rosa scratched. Eddie Butler will take his place at Philadelphia.
De La Rosa has now missed two outings with the issue, which adds to his problems. He has just one quality start in six outings and owns a 6.51 ERA with 15 walks in 27 2/3 innings.
Butler was supposed to pitch Monday.
Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler knocked around in no-decision
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler allowed four runs on nine hits in six innings of work in Colorado's 5-4 win the Reds on Monday, but did not factor into a decision.
Butler had issues beginning in the first inning when after a one-out double by Joey Votto, he surrendered a two-run home run to Todd Frazier. Then in the fourth, Butler allowed an RBI single to Billy Hamilton with two men on. Butler gave up one more run on a solo shot by Marlon Byrd in the sixth.
Butler, who remains 2-5, moved his ERA to 4.60 with one strikeout and two walks on the day. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Phillies.
|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.
