Billy Butler doesn’t want to be traded, hopes Royals pick up $12.5 million option for 2015

Royals designated hitter Billy Butler said Friday, “my best years are still ahead of me,” and that his .811 career on-base plus slugging percentage should outweigh his .679 OPS in 2014, suggesting that’s why the team should pick up his $12.5 million option for 2015. But Butler also said he was willing to renegotiate an extension at a lower rate.
