FILE - In this Aug. 9, 2014, file photo, Kansas City Royals' Billy Butler runs to third as he advances on an Alex Gordon single in the seventh inning during a baseball game against the San Francisco Giants in Kansas City, Mo. A person with knowledge of the negotiations says free agent designated hitter Butler and the Oakland Athletics have agreed to a $30 million, three-year contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday night, Nov. 18, 2014, because the A's had not announced the deal, their typical practice until a new player passes a physical. (AP Photo/Ed Zurga.
