Biscuits to face former teammate Monday

The Biscuits will take on a former teammate Monday when the Huntsville Stars send out Josh Butler as their starting pitcher.

Butler was with the Rays until he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers for major-leaguer Gabe Gross early last year. He was at high-Class A Vero Beach and a teammate of many of today's Biscuits. He pitched for low-A Columbus and Vero in 2007.

Butler would have faced the Biscuits last month in Montgomery, but he was on the disabled list. The right-hander was Tampa Bay's second-round draft pick in 2006.
