Description: Rockies righty Eddie Butler earned his first career victory Saturday against Arizona.
Insight: He received some early run support and was able to go six innings of five-hit, one-run baseball, managing one strikeout. Congrats to Butler on his first win, however, he is not fantasy relevant.

Description: The Rockies have placed Eddie Butler on the disabled list with rotator cuff inflammation, according to the Denver Post.
Insight: The highly touted pitching prospect just made his major league debut on Friday. Colorado's trainer says the move is precautionary.

Description: Colorado has promoted starting pitcher Eddie Butler to the major leagues. He'll make his big league debut Friday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Butler earned the promotion by going 4-4 with a 2.49 ERA at Double-A Tulsa. When Butler takes the mound Friday he'll become the eighth different Rockies pitcher to start a game this season.

Description: According to Thomas Harding of mlb.com, the Rockies will promote pitching prospect Eddie Butler from Double-A Tulsa to start Friday against the Dodgers. Butler has a 2.49 ERA and a 40/19 K/BB in 68 2/3 innings this season.
Insight: Butler, Baseball America's No. 24 prospect, throws in the mid- to upper-90s with his fastball, so it's surprising to see such a low strikeout total. We've also seen many Rockies top pitching prospects, including Christian Friedrich, Alex White, Drew Pomeranz, Jeff Francis and Greg Reynolds, struggle at the big-league level, so temper expectations on Butler for now.

Description: Rockies pitching prospect Eddie Butler has a 2.98 ERA and a 31/12 K/BB in 51 1/3 innings with Double-A Tulsa this season.
Insight: Butler throws in the mid- to upper-90s with his fastball, so it's surprising to see such a low strikeout total. We've also seen many Rockies top pitching prospects, including Christian Friedrich, Alex White, Drew Pomeranz, Jeff Francis and Greg Reynolds, struggle at the big-league level, so temper expectations on Butler for now. Fellow Rockies pitching prospect Jon Gray, the 2013 No. 3 overall pick, is more highly regarded than Butler, but Butler is projected to reach the big leagues first.
