Butler (shoulder, back) will not pitch in the Arizona Fall League, MLB.com reports.
Butler was bothered by upper back and shoulder pain during his final start of 2014, but he showed up in Scottsdale, Arizona, ready to work on his pitching mechanics. However, after meeting with the training staff, it was decided he'd be better off going through a rest and rehab regimen at the team's training center. Butler also dealt with a rotator cuff strain in the middle part of the year, but his injury is not believed to be anything that could require surgery or affect him long-term.
