Joey Butler heading to Japan to play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) The Cardinals sold the contract of outfielder Joey Butler to a team in the Japanese Nippon league Friday, shortly after removing him from the 25-man roster.

Butler was waived Wednesday, after spending limited time with the major-league team. The decision to allow him to move to Japan came once it became clear the 28-year-old did not have a place to play everyday at Triple-A Memphis. General manager John Mozeliak explained the decision to MLB.com.

"I really was impressed with what he did for us," Mozeliak said. "I think he's a really talented guy. But between what you had going on in the big leagues and what you have going on in Memphis, his playing time is going to dwindle both places. For him to be able to go out and make those kinds of dollars in Japan is a great opportunity for him."
