Athletics signed DH/1B Billy Butler to a three-year, $30 million contract.
He's expected to receive $5 million of it as a signing bonus. It's a surprise that Butler was able to get such a contract after the worst offensive year of his career, but the A's obviously think he can fill a void. Oakland did need to get better versus left-handed pitching, and as a career .314/.393/.519 hitter versus southpaws, he should definitely help them in that regard. Butler will be the team's primary DH while also handling some first base. Nov 19 - 12:05 PM
