Joseph Frank Butler (born March 12, 1986) is an American professional baseball outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball.

Career[edit]

Butler was selected by the Texas Rangers in the 15th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft.[1]

The Rangers called Butler up to the majors for the first time on August 5, 2013.[2] Butler was optioned back to the Triple-A Round Rock Express on August 10 to make room for Alex Ríos. He was recalled on September 3 when major league rosters expanded, and designated for assignment on September 30.[3]

He was claimed off waivers by the St. Louis Cardinals on October 3, 2013.[4]

He made his Cardinals' debut on May 10, 2014, after getting called up on May 9. He struck out, pinch-hitting in the seventh inning at Pittsburgh.
