The Royals last Thursday announced Billy Butler would be taking off at least a couple of days for a sore hand.
As it turns out, he got two days off -- the first two games in the Indians series -- and returned on Sunday.
“Ideally, I would have liked to give him another day," manager Ned Yost said. "The three days that he’s had have helped. His hand does feel better, but we’re trying to win ballgames.”
Butler went 2-for-5 in Sunday's victory against the Indians.
