RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Joey Butler.

2016

Butler spent 2011-2014 in Triple-A for Texas and St. Louis trying to prove he was worthy of another shot in the majors after seeing 21 plate appearances in the bigs during that span. The ever budget-conscious Rays took him because manager Kevin Cash was a teammate of Butlerís in the Texas system and thought he was a good hitter. He got 11 hits in his first 11 games and by Father's Day, had amassed an improbable .338/.378/.523 slash line over his first 164 plate appearances. Then, POP. He went on to hit .162/.231/.182 until the final day of the season when he went 3-for-4 with two homers and six RBI. Heís Quadruple-A material that could hang around the game for a bit, but he had a nice moment. Heís an impatient batter that got away with a lot of fortunate batted ball luck early on and then demonstrated why heís been in Triple-A for so many years.

2014

Butler, who spent September on the Rangers' 40-man roster, was designated for assignment at the end of the season and claimed by the Cardinals. The 27-year-old outfielder will have a very hard time scratching the big leagues behind what is an extremely deep Cardinals outfield, even with the loss of Carlos Beltran. Butler is a capable fielder and has been a .300 hitter in three seasons at Triple-A. He also has some modest pop and may find his way onto a fantasy roster or two, if he's forced into full-time action due to injuries, but that scenario appears to be something of a long shot as long as he's rostered by a club with World Series aspirations.
