Astros Sign Travis Buck

The Astros signed outfielder Travis Buck, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America (on Twitter). The 27-year-old appeared in 50 games for the Indians in 2011 before electing free agency at the end of the season.

Buck played all three outfield positions for Cleveland, hitting .228/.275/.342 in 160 plate appearances. In five seasons with the Indians and Athletics, Buck has a .246/.320/.408 line, so he could provide useful depth for the Astros, who are thin in the outfield after trading Hunter Pence and Michael Bourn this past summer.
