Player Notes
Billy Butler hit his ninth home run of the season in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Advice: The homer in the fourth inning, a solo shot, was his only hit in four at-bats. He's got four of his nine home runs in August as he's turned in a strong month. Butler has shaken off his early struggles, bringing his overall line up to .277/.326/.391.

Billy Butler hit his eighth home run of the season on Friday.

Advice: Butler finished the game 1-for-5. While Butler's still hitting for average this season (.280), his power numbers have been noticeably lower than normal. After hitting a career-high of 29 home runs in 2012, Butler's home run total dropped to 15 in 2013. Given that it's now late August, it's doubtful he'll match that number this year unless he goes on a tear. He's slashing .280/.330/.385 overall.
