DREW BUTERA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yasiel Puig & Drew Butera finally make Japan Series relevant to Dodgers fans

The MLB All-Stars opened their time in Japan with an 8-7 exhibition win against the combined teams of Hanshin Tigers and Yomiuri Giants, with Yasiel Puig going 1-for-4 with an RBI and Drew Butera going 0-for-1 but coming up with an important pick-off at second. Unfortunately, once the actual Japan Series started, neither did much of anything. The MLB All-Stars lost three games in...

Drew Butera's first-pitch experience with Chrissy Teigen was 'most interesting'

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- There are two words Dodgers catcher Drew Butera used to describe his encounter with Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen Tuesday night: "most interesting." Butera was behind the plate before game two of the Freeway Series to receive Teigen's first pitch Tuesday night. The catcher caught the pitch, just off the plate and then had to catch...

Chrissy Teigen Tosses Impressive First Pitch At Dodgers Game (Video)

When supermodel Chrissy Teigen took the mound to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Tuesday’s Los Angeles Dodgers-Los Angeles Angels game, the bar wasn’t exactly set very high. We’ve seen some pretty brutal first pitches this season (we’re looking at you, 50 Cent) and judging by Teigen’s practice attempts before the game, it didn’t look like she’d fare any better...

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...

Diamondbacks 18, Dodgers 7: At Least Butera Pitched

Tonight’s game was terrible. Then it wasn’t. Then it was even worse. Baseball, right? After the emotional roller coaster, the Dodgers fell to the Diamondbacks by a score of 18-7. Things started out well enough for Clayton Kershaw, who began the game by getting A.J. Pollock out on the first pitch, then striking out Chris Owings and Paul Goldschmidt. After the first inning,...

Dodgers catcher Drew Butera strikes out Marcell Ozuna with 94 mph fastball (GIF)

The Miami Marlins dominated the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday, comfortably cruising to a 13-3 victory. Obviously, there weren’t many highlights for the Dodgers. However, one came in the top of the ninth inning, when catcher Drew Butera made a relief pitching appearance. Butera got Christian Yelich to line out and induced a ground out […]

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...

Watch: Dodgers C Drew Butera Takes the Mound & Showcases Nasty Breaking Ball-Fastball Combo

It’s always fun when position players come in to pitch late in baseball games. And that’s exactly what happened in tonight’s Marlins-Dodgers game, which Miami would go on to win, 13-3. But the real action took place when catcher Drew Butera was called in to pitch in the top of the ninth inning, as the team’s bullpen was completely depleted. He got the job done with a 1-2...
