Butera spent 35 games at 2B, committing two errors in 186 chances for a .989 Fld%, and 24 games at SS, making six errors in 111 chances for a .946 Fld%. He did play two games at 3B and one in RF. He also stole 16 bases in 19 tries for a 84.2% success rate.

Butera, whose father played in the Boston organization, is a Louisiana boy drafted out of Boston College. He absolutely killed lefties, struggled in June and July, and smoked it in August before cooling off to end the season (.200/.317/.229 in his last ten games of the season). He doesn't strikeout terribly often, and all of his extra-base hits were doubles, but it will be interesting to see him in a full season.
