Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline is two weeks from today, and it seems the chatter about a Royals-Mariners deal is picking up again.

Seattle has inquired in the past about Royals’ designated hitter Billy Butler, whose average (.273) and slugging percentage (.355) are the lowest of his career.

Butler is due to be paid $12 million in 2015, but the Royals have a $1 million buyout.
