Royals | More on Billy Butler decision
Fri, 05 Apr 2013 12:50:40 -0700

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost chose to sit 1B Billy Butler in favor of 1B Eric Hosmer Friday, April 5, mostly because the team will face left-handed pitchers for the rest of the weekend. "If I sit Hos today," Yost said, "he doesn't (start) for three days. If a pitcher has never faced a hitter, the advantage kind of goes to the pitcher. Kendrick has never faced Billy or Hos." OF Jeff Francoeur is also 9-for-22 in his career against Philadelphia Phillies SP Kyle Kendrick. Yost is reluctant to put Hosmer in the outfield, so Francoeur will likely start all three games against the Phils. INFs Miguel Tejada and Elliot Johnson might also see playing time this weekend.
