Kansas City Royals Weekend Links: Butler & Hochevar May Face Arbitration, Bannister Heads to Japan

As noted on the official site, five controlled Royals (Butler, Hochevar most notably) still need a new contract for 2011. It's unlikely that any actually get to arbitration, but it is a possibility. As usual, lots of prospect talk as well, good stuff from around the baseball world, and an unusually foreign minded Grab Bag section.
