In 1992, Butts joined the Braves. His role currently is to coordinate the scouting reports of all Braves' opponents as well as take part in other pre-game preparations. He serves as a liaison between the Braves' advance scout and the team itself, helping the team prepare for each series. During each game, he aids the bullpen coach and pitchers in the bullpen. He has also served as the team's bullpen catcher. He was officially listed as a coach in 2011 and 2012, although sources are not consistent regarding whether or not he was a true coach or simply an instructor.
