Billy Butler reaches twice from sixth spot - Billy Butler (DH) Kansas City Royals

Dropped from the cleanup spot for the first time this season, Billy Butler went 1-for-3 with a walk Thursday against the Astros.

Royals' Ned Yost will drop Billy Butler from cleanup spot

Mired in an alarming, early-season slump, Royals designated hitter Billy Butler is moving out of the cleanup spot. Manager Ned Yost confirmed the impending switch during an interview with KCSP (610 AM) on Thursday morning. The most likely result means Butler will drop to No. 6 and swap places with catcher Salvador Perez.

Royals sticking with Billy Butler despite early-season hitting slump

So far this season, Billy Butler has only six hits in 39 at-bats. He has yet to produce an extra-base hit. Still, manager Ned Yost does not intend to shuffle his lineup. Butler will remain his No. 4 hitter, sandwiched between Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon, with catcher Salvador Perez still batting sixth.

Belting more extra-base hits for Royals ranks high on Billy Butler's agenda

Coming off what for him was a down year, Royals DH Billy Butler is concentrating on two very specific things right now: Hitting more extra-base hits and whalloping more home runs.
