Eddie Butler promoted again
Former Grand Junction Rockies’ pitcher Eddie Butler, who started the season in Class A Asheville and moved to Class A Advanced Modesto earlier this season, has been promoted to Double A Tulsa.
Butler will take Chad Bettis’ spot on the Drillers’ roster after Bettis was promoted to the Colorado Rockies earlier this week. With Jon Gray’s promotion from Grand Junction to Modesto, Butler was in line to move up. Gray is making his debut for the Nuts tonight, when Butler was originally scheduled to pitch.
