Certainly hampered on this list by his lack of defensive skills, Billy Butler was best used as a Designated Hitter, a role he spent approximately two thirds of his Royals career at.  Focusing on his offensive skills, Butler was a more than capable DH winning the Edgar Martinez Award as the DH of the year in 2012.  Five years in a row (2009-13) he would hit 15 or more Home Runs and he would post two .300 seasons with a decent career Royals Batting Average of .295.

Overall as a Kansas City Royal, Butler would have 127 Home Runs with 1,273 Hits.
