Does anyone have any idea when Butler will be recalled from AAA?

When he is deemed to have his mojo back.
Seeing as he is mashing in AAA, that should be before the trade deadline.

Post-ASB likely. He hasn't been exactly mashing lately, he had a great start but has cooled back off. 7 straight without an XBH.

Butler should be back up very soon. I just dont see how the Royals are better off w/ Gload & his .230 0 Hr self over Butler at this point. At least Billy has a future to grow into.....

Kind of harsh. Plenty, if not all, major leaguers go through this so why is Butler subject to it? Going into tonight's game he was hitting like .360 with an OPS of 1.009. My main concern with him has never been the hitting but rather his defense. I'd much rather have him be able to play a position in the majors rather than be a DH so early in his career. I'm curious about whether his defense has improved during his stay in Omaha but haven't read anything yet...
