  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Collects first three-hit day

    Butler went 3-for-3 with a walk, one RBI and two runs scored during Sunday's 7-6 win over the Nationals.

    After collecting three strikeouts Saturday, Butler rebounded by reaching base in all four plate appearances and collecting the first three-hit game of his career Sunday.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Goes deep in victory

    Butler went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two RBI in Friday's win over the Nationals.

    Butler opened the game's scoring with his first homer of the season in the third inning, a 445-foot solo blast off Jake Irvin. The Oakland outfielder also singled home the game-winning run in the 10th inning. Butler has struggled to start the season, slashing .179/.304/.308 over his first 46 plate appearances, so perhaps Friday's stellar game could be the jump start he needs.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Multi-hit effort in win

    Butler entered Sunday's win over the Tigers in the fourth inning as a replacement for Brent Rooker (abdomen) and went 2-for-3 with a double.

    Butler originally had the day off in the midst of a multi-game funk, but the speedy outfielder's time on the bench didn't last long. The unexpected taste of action actually worked out well for Butler, who produced his first multi-hit effort of the season and snapped out of a 1-for-12 skid that had encompassed his previous four games. Despite a productive afternoon that also included his second extra-base hit of the season, Butler is still carrying a forgettable .185/.290/.259 slash line across his first 31 plate appearances of the new campaign.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Out against left-hander

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Struggling early in 2024

    Butler is hitting .133 (2-for-15) over the first five games of the regular season.

    The talented outfielder has also struck out five times in his 17 plate appearances, an elevated rate by the standards he'd set last season at both the Double-A and Triple-A levels. Naturally, the early-season caveats regarding small samples apply, but after he posted a 31.7 percent chase rate over a larger body of work (123 PA) in his first taste of the big leagues in 2023, Butler notably has a similarly elevated 27.0 percent figure in that category to start the new season. Nevertheless, as a team without any realistic designs on postseason contention, the Athletics are likely to give Butler every opportunity to work through growing pains throughout 2024.
