2016

2015

Butler received his first call to the big leagues last June, with optimism abounding that he and, eventually, fellow top prospect Jon Gray, would immediately lock down spots in the Colorado rotation for seasons to come. Unfortunately, Butler barely had the chance to showcase his stuff. He fell victim to shoulder soreness following his debut and didnít pitch for the Rockies again until September, making it difficult to glean much from his uneven three-start sample. That being said, the long-term outlook remains bright for the 24-year-old, whose plus fastball and quality secondary offerings have allowed him to thrive in offense-heavy environments during his minor league career. The Rockiesí need for high-upside starters gives Butler an inside track on an Opening Day rotation spot, but the concerns with pitchers who call Coors Field home still apply. In fact, even if Butler does become the frontline starter the Rockies are banking on, his real-life value would more than likely outstrip his fantasy utility. The righty mostly gets by on inducing weak contact rather than making batters whiff, as his pedestrian 5.2 K/9 rate with Double-A Tulsa last season would illustrate. It remains to be seen if he will change his approach to miss bats as frequently as he did at lower levels of the minor leagues.

2014

Although he entered the past season as a highly-touted commodity within his own organization, Butler concluded 2013 as one of the more coveted prospects in all of baseball, after dominating at three different levels. It was at his last stop, Double-A Tulsa, where he was particularly unhittable, allowing just two earned runs over 27.2 innings, while striking out 25 and walking six. With a devastating three-pitch mix, highlighted by a fastball consistently clocked in the mid-90s, Butler is viewed as a potential top-of-the-rotation starter once he reaches his peak for the Rockies, who have lacked a legitimate ace since trading away Ubaldo Jimenez. The Rockies only have three rotation spots seemingly solidified at the moment, presenting Butler with an outside chance at grabbing a starting gig in the spring, but it's more likely that he opens 2014 in the high minors. If those levels continue to prove unchallenging for him, however, look for the 23-year-old to make his MLB debut at some point this season and remain a long-term fixture.
