Trey Hillman Pregame Media Session: August 7

Billy (Super Boy) Butler

What is Billy Butler doing at the plate that is making him such a terror for opposing pitchers these days?  Manager Trey Hillman says it is a multitude of things, “First, he is not trying to add power during hitters counts, he is taking what they are giving him.  He’s being more selective and he is doing very well when he gets behind in the count.  Billy is growing up and becoming a more complete baseball player, it happens with maturity.”

Misc.

Hillman says he is going to be taking long hard looks the rest of the season at some of his younger players on the roster.  Case in point is Royals catcher Brayan Pena hitting fourth tonight against the Oakland Athletics, as he did last night.  “We are going to keep looking at him closely. He’s calling games very well. Brayan is a talented baseball player and we like what he is doing at the plate.”
