Rockies | Eddie Butler sent to minors

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:15:57 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler was optioned to Class AAA Albuquerque Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had a 5.90 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and a weak 4.8 K/9 this year after allowing a whopping 17 earned runs in his last 14 innings over three starts. You can drop him if you owned him in an NL-only league. Gonzalez Germen was recalled and could join the rotation in Butler's place. Germen isn't attractive, even in the deepest of leagues.

Rockies | Eddie Butler being demoted

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 14:48:55 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler is being sent to the minors Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been too inconsistent for fantasy players to rely on, posting a 4.80 ERA and 1.82 WHIP while striking out only 4.8 hitters per nine innings. The move likely means David Hale ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will remain in the rotation for the time being. Chris Rusin is another intriguing matchup option on FantasyScore if he gets a prolonged look in the rotation.

Rockies | Jorge De La Rosa scratched

Sat, 30 May 2015 13:43:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa (finger) was scratched from his start Saturday, May 30, and SP Eddie Butler was moved up to start against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been awful thus far and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Chad Bettis starting Thursday

Wed, 13 May 2015 16:04:50 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis has been recalled from the minors and will start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, May 14, with SP Eddie Butler going Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Bettis will stay in the Rockies rotation, but a strong start would certainly help his cause. He'll be dirt cheap at FantasyScore, but against a potent Dodgers lineup, there's no reason to take the huge risk.

Rockies | Eddie Butler has inside track

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 08:55:09 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler has the inside track to one of the final starting rotation spots.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) is a decent prospect that would receive consideration on FantasyScore. However, he has to deal with Coors Field, so mix and match as necessary.

Rockies | Colorado youths eyeing rotation spot

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 15:15:49 -0700

Colorado Rockies SPs Jon Gray and Eddie Butler are competing for the final rotation spot, according manager Walt Weiss. Also in the running are SPs David Hale and Christian Bergman.

Fantasy Tip: Gray and Butler have the fantasy upside, with the former being the team's top pitching prospect. Although until there is an official announcement, it is difficult to roster any of the four outside of NL-only formats, especially pitching their home games at Coors Field. It is a situation to monitor, and if Gray or Butler win the job, they could warrant a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues.

Tests showed a chest bruise and fluid in his lungs Tuesday, Sept. 16, and manager Walt Weiss said it's "going to be a few days before he's even up and about. But I think we'll see him before the season is over." The team recalled SP Eddie Butler from Double-A Tulsa Tuesday, and he could start this weekend.
