Drew Butera, c, Kansas City Royals

resized_drew butera

Butera was a 5th round pick of the Mets in 2005.  His defense has always been his calling card, and he has always been projected to be, at worst, a backup catcher at the big league level.  That projection has held true, as he is currently the #2 catcher on the contending Royals, behind Salvador Perez.

I was happy to get this autograph while the Royals were visiting Cleveland.
