Orioles in the mix for Billy Butler?

The defending American League champion Royals would like to retain designated hitter Billy Butler, despite turning down his $12 million club option.

However, sources say, Butler has received a 3-year, $30 million offer from a team widely believed to be the Orioles. If that’s the case, the Royals will pursue other options including the possibility of not having a dedicated DH and regulars through that spot to give them a little bit of a break.
