Angels Designate Billy Buckner For Assignment

The Angels will designate Billy Buckner for assignment in order to clear a roster spot for right-hander J.C. Gutierrez, who the club claimed off waivers from the Royals yesterday, according to's Alden Gonzalez (on Twitter).

Buckner, 29, appeared in seven games for the Halos this season (two starts), posting a 4.67 ERA in 17 2/3 innings. However, he managed just seven strikeouts against seven walks and also allowed a staggering five home runs in that short time. He was already outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster once this season back in May.
