4/11 (De)Butera Angels lineup

Drew Butera makes his Angels debut. It’s his DeButera. Tonight's #Angels lineup — Eric Kay (@EKayAngels) April 11, 2015 Chris Iannetta gets the night off, but he’ll probably still strikeout twice anyway. C.J. Cron also is conspicuously close to being a platoon that Scioscia refuses to acknowledge as well. The post 4/11 (De)Butera Angels lineup...

2015 Player Projection: Drew Butera

The Angels have a new back-up catcher. His name is Drew Butera, but he might actually just be a handsome version of Jeff Mathis. What happened in 2014?Drew Butera completed his fifth season in the majors and for the fifth time (OK, fourth, he barely played in 2013) he was probably the worst hitting position player in the majors. That is only a slight exaggeration. Butera really...

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...
