He is primarily a DH, but he played 20 games at first last year. One observer told me Butler is not as bad defensively as people may think (just no real range). Really, it doesn't matter. Because to trade the 26-year-old Butler, the Kansas City Royals would want an established, top-end starting pitcher, and the Orioles don't have that commodity.
