Butler's game lacks explosiveness, but he's a excellent fundamental player, with a knack for producing line drives to the gaps and above-average hands at second base. Butler has a consistent focus and intensity, and so he's able to get the most out of his tools. He has fringy range and arm strength at second, and some scouts believe he has the ability to stay there. Some scouts project him to develop into an average bat with fringe-average power. Butler takes a very impressive batting practice, showing the ability to line the ball to all fields. He has a knack for stinging the ball with backspin, and has shown the ability to drive the ball over the fence when he runs into a mistake pitch.
