Rockies SP Eddie Butler hurt by longball in loss on Wedesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Rockies rookie starter Eddie Butler pitched fairly well against the Cubs on Wednesday afternoon, but he was simply outpitched by the crafty veteran Jon Lester. Butler allowed three runs on five hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out four, needing 82 pitches (45 strikes) to get through the fifth in the 3-2 loss.

Butler (3-7, 4.82 ERA) was bitten by the longball on Wednesday. He gave up a lead-off home run to Dexter Fowler in the first inning, and then allowed a two-run shot to Anthony Rizzo in the third to account for all the scoring the Cubs would have on the afternoon.

"He got himself into some trouble but got big outs," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, per MLB.com. "He threw the ball well. The home run by Anthony Rizzo got some help. The ball was going to right field today. But [Butler] did a nice job."

The youngster has made two starts since coming back from the minor leagues. He has given up six earned runs over 11 innings in those outings. He has yet to more than six innings any start of his young career.

Rockies SP Eddie Butler starting Sunday vs. Padres


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/18/2015) Rookie right-hander Eddie Butler will make his next start for the Rockies on Sunday against the Padres, according to the Denver Post. Butler made his last big-league start back on June 5, when he allowed six runs on 11 hits against the Marlins.

He was sent down to Triple-A following that start, but his numbers with Albuquerque have not been all that impressive. Butler is 2-2 with a 6.27 ERA in six starts for the Isotopes. 

With the Rockies this year, Butler is 3-6 with a 4.80 ERA. However, removing that June 5 start brings his ERA down to more respectable 4.22. It is not known if this will be a spot start for Butler, or if he has earned a more perminent role in the rotation.

Butler, who was a last-minute substitution for Jorge De La Rosa, limited the Phillies' offense to just one run on four hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out three, as he kept the Phillies off the bases for most of the game.

"Attacked the zone, got early contact, let the guys make some plays," Butler said, per the Denver Post. "And then our guys score some runs. They were hitting the ball around the park."

The only run he gave up came on a first-inning RBI double from Ryan Howard. Butler (3-5) lowered his ERA to 4.22 with Saturday's quality performance. Butler managed to induce 11 groundball outs.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss calls starting pitcher Eddie Butler's two-seam fastball a "safety net," according to The Denver Post. Butler's "safety net" was a big help during Monday's game against the Giants.

The pitch helped Butler work out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning by getting Gregor Blanco to ground out to first base. He loaded the bases again in the second inning, but once again worked out of trouble by getting Angel Pagan to ground out.

"Definitely, I go to that pitch," he said. "That's my double-play ball. As long as I can keep it low, they can't square it up, and it's a great thing."

Butler induced 11 groundball outs Monday.

"When the guys make contact, they usually hit the top of the ball," Weiss said. :Eddie created some traffic for himself, but he pitched through it. He pitched around it."
