Latest News
Billy Butler stays hot with season-best three RBI
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/17/14) Royals DH Billy Butler continued his hot streak at the plate, totaling a season-best three RBI in an 11-8 win Monday at Detroit. He now has four multi-RBI games in his last six outings.

Butler totaled all three RBI on a bases-clearing double off Justin Verlander in the fifth inning. He is batting .455 (10 for 22) with one home run, two doubles and 10 RBI during a six-game hit streak.

Butler has been on a good run offensively over the last month. He is batting .327 with a .374 on-base percentage and .810 OPS in his last 28 games. However, his power is still down, as he has just one home run in that span and two home runs in 69 games.

Billy Butler finally blasts second homer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/14/14) Royals designated hitter Billy Butler achieved Saturday what he achieved by mid-April last season - he hit his second home run of the year.

Butler contributed to a rout of the White Sox with a two-run homer in the ninth. He had also singled and scored in the fourth in continuing a hot streak. He has hit in nine of his last 10 games with 12 hits in his last 35 at-bats. His .261 average is at its highest point of the season.

Royals name Dale Sveum as new hitting coach
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/29/14) The Royals have named Dale Sveum as the team's new hitting coach, according to the Kansas City Star.

The Royals have been one of the biggest disappointments on offense. The team is currently last in the majors with 21 home runs. While they feature the lowest strikeout rate in the league, the team is also near the bottom of the league in walk rate. The Royals' team on-base percentage is just .306, one of the lowest figures in the league.

Nearly every player on the club has declined offensively. After a strong spring, Mike Moustakas was demoted to the minors. Both Billy Butler and Eric Hosmer have each only hit one home run. Sveum will now be tasked with turning around those players.

Billy Butler produces first three-hit game of season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/19/14) Royals designated hitter Billy Butler enjoyed his first three-hit game of the season Sunday afternoon against the Orioles.

Butler got things going offensively with an RBI single off starter Ubaldo Jimenez in the opening frame. He singled in the fifth and doubled in the seventh. He finished 3 for 4 with two runs scored and an RBI in an 8-6 victory. He raised his average from .283 to .294 on the year. He has one home run and 16 RBI in 154 at-bats.

Billy Butler relegated to fifth spot in lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/14) Royals designated hitter Billy Butler has been pushed down beyond the cleanup spot for the first time since he batted sixth on April 20. He will hit fifth Friday night against Baltimore.

Butler has struggled most of the season. He has just five hits in his last 29 at-bats and hasn't homered since May 2. He owns a slugging percentage of .296, which is 104 points under the worst he has compiled in a full season.
