PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — Earlier in spring training a couple of major leagues scouts were watching the Red Sox go through their pregame drills. Unprompted, one of the scouts mentioned Dan Butler, saying he has been very impressed by him. Another scout joined in, saying how much he likes how Butler calls a game and handles veteran pitchers.
Butler is one of the five catchers on the Sox’ 40-man roster. He is probably the one you’ve heard the least about.
