Did they put Shealy on the DL to call him up? That would be sweet as I got Shealy and could then pick-up Butler with the free put in my roto-league. Thanks for any help!!

yes Shealy on DL. They sent down some other guy and are calling up Butler and a lefty pitcher. Can't recall their names now.

Rotoworld says:

"Royals purchased the contract of outfielder Billy Butler from Triple-A Omaha.
So now both Alex Gordon and Butler are going to be accruing service time in a year in which the Royals are going absolutely nowhere. Having both arbitration eligible after 2009 is going to hurt the GM Dayton Moore's chances of putting a competitive team on the field when the club may actually be in position to contend. Butler is probably ready to hit in the majors right now, but he'll be a significant liability in left field. The team isn't going to give up on designated hitter Mike Sweeney yet, so this looks like a bad move all around. Still, AL-only leaguers should go ahead and pick him up."

And by the way, you experts out there, would you rather have Butler or Hunter Pence on your fantasy roster? Please don't answer "both", I can't...

Pence will give you a little more speed, but Butler helps a lot in AVG. I think I'm grabbing Butler, as much as I like Pence.
