Billy Butler out, Danny Valencia in Wednesday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:32 am ET) The Royals have benched designated hitter Billy Butler on Wednesday against the White Sox in favor of Danny Valencia. Butler continues to struggle, particularly in regard to his power numbers. He has just one home run since June 14 and three doubles since June 19. His .267/.320/.347 stat line pales in comparison to those he has compiled in previous seasons.
Billy Butler willing to renegotiate deal to remain with Royals
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/14) Royals designated hitter Billy Butler is due a $12.5 million club option for 2015 or a $1 million buyout, but he indicated Monday that he'd be willing to renegotiate the deal to remain in Kansas City, MLB.com reports.

"If the option doesn't work, I'd be more than happy to renegotiate in any type of way. I've always said that," Butler said on Monday. "I've been with the Royals for my whole career so why wouldn't I? It's all I've ever known and I love it here. I never said anything about, 'Oh, it's my option year, take it or leave it.'"

Butler is in the middle of a down season, hitting just .269/.320/.348 with three home runs and 36 RBI in 353 at-bats. He has averaged just shy of 20 home runs over the last five seasons while never failing to post a batting average below .289.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.
