Royals sticking with Billy Butler despite early-season hitting slump

So far this season, Billy Butler has only six hits in 39 at-bats. He has yet to produce an extra-base hit. Still, manager Ned Yost does not intend to shuffle his lineup. Butler will remain his No. 4 hitter, sandwiched between Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon, with catcher Salvador Perez still batting sixth.
