Angels Designate Billy Buckner For Assignment

The Angels have designated Billy Buckner for assignment, the club announced.  Buckner has now been DFA'd three times since the start of the 2013 season.  In a related move, Cory Rasmus has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Buckner, who turns 30 next week, made two starts and five relief appearances for the Angels this season, posting a 4.67 ERA with 3.6 K/9 and BB/9.  He spent the bulk of the year at Triple-A, where he posted a 4.60 ERA with 7.0 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9 in 16 starts.
