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.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(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.

Highlighting top pitcher prospects for 2015
So many prospects makes narrowing down a top 30 daunting. Scott White sorts through the contenders and starts his list with Noah Syndergaard and Dylan Bundy.
|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.
