Royals' Drew Butera gives Salvador Perez a break from field

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/26/15) Royals catcher Salvador Perez gets a break from the field on Sunday. Perez is in the starting lineup at designated hitter for Sunday's game. 

It's Perez's second start at DH this year and first since June 30. 

Replacing Perez at catcher is Drew Butera, who gets his 12th start behind the plate and second in three games. 

C Drew Butera gets nod behind the plate for Royals

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/25/15) Catcher Drew Butera will make his third start for the Royals on Monday since being acquired from the Angels, starting against the Yankees and hitting ninth. 

Butera's last start came on May 14 and he's seen just two plate appearances since then. He has two hits in eight at-bats with the Royals. 

Second baseman Omar Infante is the only Royals starter with experience against Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, with two hits in three at-bats. 

Royals facing decision on backup catchers Erik Kratz, Drew Butera

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/15) The Royals will have to make a decision soon on what they will do with their backup catcher role, according to MLB.com.

Erik Kratz was pegged as the team's second catcher, even after the team acquired Drew Butera from the Angels. With Kratz currently on the DL, Butera has done well in his place, posting a .218 average with four runs scored this season. Manager Ned Yost will answer when he has Kratz available.

"I'm not going to answer those questions until Kratzie comes off the rehab," Yost said. "We'll make a determination then and do it like we always do. We'll get together as an organization and plot it out.

"Right now, we got two really good options and we have to decide the best option."

Yost really likes the defense Kratz brings to the plate.

"Butera's defense is really good. Kratzie's offensive capabilities, mostly his power, is very, very good," Yost said. "Butera's offense is good and he understands situations to do what you want your backup catcher to do -- he can bunt, go the other way, move runners. You got a runner on third base and [Butera] will find a way to get him in."

Royals' Lorenzo Cain, Salvador Perez get a breather Thursday

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/14/15) The Royals gave center fielder Lorenzo Cain and catcher Salvador Perez the day off Thursday against the Royals, per MLB.com. With both players out, manager Ned Yost inserted Drew Butera behind the plate and in the eighth spot, and Jarrod Dyson in center field and in the ninth spot in the order.

Kansas City is favored (-110) against the Rangers in Arlington, per VegasInsider.com.

Royals C Salvador Perez returns to lineup on Sunday

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/10/15) After taking Saturday off, Royals catcher Salvador Perez is back in Kansas City's lineup and is batting sixth

Perez missed only his second game of the season when he sat Saturday. He's back in the lineup for Drew Butera, who replaced him on his day off. Perez is hitting .306/.316/.459 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 111 at-bats. 

The Royals will face Tigers pitcher Shane Greene, who Perez is 0 for 3 with a strikeout against.
