But their style of play is very similar.
Both attempt to use the bunt as a weapon not only for infield hits, but as a way to boost doubles and triples down the lines.
Both sacrifice power for BA and won't swing at pitches out of the zone.
Both utilize speed as their primary weapon.
If style of play counts, Butler is the type of player Hamilton looks to be patterning his game after.
