Drafted in the 14th round (428th overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
A 6-foot-1, 200-pound left fielder, Butler had a terrific season this spring and was the leading hitter on a North Carolina State team that had one of the better offenses in the country. He hit .377/.451/.665 through 49 games, with 13 home runs and 12 doubles, while going 16-for-17 in stolen base attempts. Because of that production, Butler should get some interest later in the draft and analytics-heavy teams might be much higher on him than teams that rely heavily on their scouts’ reports. Evaluators don’t seem to buy into Butler’s swing at the level he’s performed this spring and think he struggles with premium velocity and good breaking stuff. Butler has been a good baserunner in his time with the Wolfpack, and has gone 28-for-31 (90%) in stolen base attempts over three seasons.
