Billy Butler likely moving back to cleanup spot

The reason is two-fold: Butler has been five for 14 in his last four games and appears to be rounding into his usual form. Meanwhile, Salvador Perez. who replaced Butler as the No. 4 hitter, has batted just .108 in his last nine games. He has one hit in his cleanup cameo.

Billy Butler having trouble connecting this season

Billy Butler hits baseballs. Hard. This is what he does. So what happens when the hitting stops, inexplicably if temporarily, at the start of what might be the most important season of a career?

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.
