Kendrys Morales is looking for “Billy Butler money”

20 Comments

Kendrys Morales hit just .218/.274/.338 with eight home runs and 42 RBI in 98 games this past season between the Mariners and Twins, but the Scott Boras client is again aiming high on the free agent market.

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick heard from an American League executive Monday at the Winter Meetings that the 31-year-old designated hitter is seeking “multiple years and substantial dollars.” Specifically, Morales is said to want “Billy Butler money.”

Butler snagged a three-year, $30 million free agent deal from the Athletics in mid-November.

Good luck with all that, Kendrys.
