Frequent benchings begin as Billy Butler out of Friday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:27 pm ET) Despite the continued absence of injured Eric Hosmer from the Royals lineup Friday against Cleveland, designated hitter Billy Butler is not playing. That indicates how far he has fallen in the eyes of Ned Yost.

Yost has already announced that Butler will be losing playing time. The one-time slugger has just one hit in his last 15 at-bats and owns a stat line of .264/.319/.343 that pales in comparison to those compiled in seasons past.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:22 pm ET) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer was out of the lineup for the second game in a row Friday against the Indians, as he continues to deal with a hand injury.

Hosmer has been out since leaving Wednesday's game due to ongoing issues with his hand, which have led to decreased grip strength. He remains day to day as a result of this issue.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:18 pm ET) A back issue will apparently not prevent David Ortiz from making his appointed rounds at designated hitter Friday for the Red Sox at Tampa Bay. He has told John Farrell that he's good to go, per Comcast Sports Net.

Ortiz, who felt twinges in his mid-back Wednesday and Thursday, had it evaluated Friday.

Jayson Werth returns from knee issue
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:02 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth was back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds, after sitting out the team's previous game with a knee injury.

Werth got two days off with the offday Thursday, which allowed him to get past the soreness that was bothering him earlier in the week. He is hitting .377/.472/.852 in 16 July games.
