News: Butler is out of the lineup Wednesday vs. the White Sox, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Forced to man first base the previous two games while Eric Hosmer nursed a hand injury, Butler will receive the day off entirely for rest purposes with the Royals playing a day game after a night game. A healthy Hosmer will resume duties at first base, while Danny Valencia takes over Butler's usual DH role.(RotoWire, )

News: Butler hit a solo home run in Kansas City's 16-4 loss to Detroit on Thursday. Impact: Butler has gone deep just three times this season, and hasn't hit for the high batting average we're accustomed to with Country Breakfast. He's shown minor signs of life recently, with a five-game hitting streak, but it's still hard to get excited about him.(RotoWire, )
