Dodgers send Drew Butera to the Angels for cash or PTBNL

And so ends the Drew Butera … era. The Dodgers traded the light-hitting backup catcher to the Angels on Tuesday for a player to be named later or cash. I’m assuming it’s money, because there’s no way Butera — the catcher or reliever — has any real value on the trade market. Butera was acquired at the trade deadline 2013 for Miguel Sulbaran (who has since been traded to...

Watch: Dodgers Drew Butera Plays Dodgeball, Drills Poor Boy

Drew Butera may be a backup catcher, but he throws as hard as most MLB starting pitchers do. We watched him hit 94 mph on the gun less than a week ago, as he pitched a scoreless inning against the Marlins.  He absolutely embarrassed OF Marcell Ozuna with a sick breaking ball-fastball combo to strike him out. But the real fun came this week, as the Dodgers are in NYC for a series...

Introducing Drew Butera, Relief Ace

Drew Butera is now the Dodgers best reliever with a 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP, 1.11 FIP, 1.11 xFIP, and 0.69 SIERA. He’s magic, basically. Yes, the Dodgers were routed last night, 13-3, but Butera was a rare bright spot, pitching one perfect inning that included a strikeout punctuated by 94 mph heat. This wasn’t Butera’s first rodeo though, as he had previously pitched a scoreless...
