Has anyone else noticed Butera hasn't started an A game lately?
Maybe I'm missing something, but looking at the box scores, I see:
Today vs. Philly - Mauer started and Butera came in as a very late sub
Yesterday vs Blt - Towles started and played the whole game
Monday vs TB - Mauer started and Butera came in as a sub
Sunday vs STL - Doumit started
It doesn't look like Gardy is letting Butera face any of the opposing team's starting pitchers. I wonder if he hasn't falled behind Towles. Am I missing something?
