Butera singled in his third career plate appearance at Dodger Stadium on September 27.
Butera, despite having just two minor league games of experience at first base, played two games at the position, including one start, as the Dodgers played out the season.

What went wrong
Butera was just 1-for-7 in his brief time with the Dodgers, and was only 1-for-10 on the season including his time with the Twins.
He was also just 7-for-52 (.135) with three doubles and a triple in 16 games with Triple-A Albuquerque.
On Friday the Dodgers announced that they had signed Butera for 2014. He has a non-guaranteed contract for $700,000 plus up to $100,000 in performance incentives. With no options remaining, the 30-year-old will head into spring training fighting for the backup catcher position.
