Billy Butler released by the Oakland Athletics

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com UPDATE – 9-15-16: Butler has signed a major league deal with the New York Yankees to finish out the 2016 season. Whereas the Bronx is a logical fit for Billy's batting skillset, I had originally not included them in the "Where does he land?" part of this article due to the youth movement tendancies the Yankess have shown since mid-season.

Royals expand Roster, and a baby Moose

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com It is officially roster expansion time in the MLB, and the Royals took full advantage by bringing up some young talent today.  Returning to the club are utility fielder Whit Merrifield, outfiled Terrance Gore and Catcher Tony Cruz.  But probably the biggest news is the much awaited call up of third baseman Hunter Dozier.  Dozier had a career year in the minors with a triple slash of...
