Here is a player who could surprise if what is being said about his teammates comes true. Royals' DH Billy Butler has been termed a "monster" by one unnamed scout who has contacts with ESPN baseball reporters, and his teammate Alex Gordon has so impressed his new manager Trey Hillman that he will be batting third.

Mr. Carroll provides a round-up of the week's injuries and has an interesting link contained at the end of Kelvim Escobar's write-up.
