Nick Buss, who was called up Saturday, doubled twice off Felix Hernandez in a losing cause Monday.

The Angels have gotten nothing at all out of left field this year, so the 29-year-old Buss is getting his chance now. He's not going to turn into a 2017 option for the club, but he should have some AL-only value while receiving significant playing time now.

Angels purchased the contract of OF Nick Buss from Triple-A Salt Lake.

The 29-year-old is making his Angels debut on Saturday, starting in center field and batting eighth against the Indians. Buss was hitting .290/.345/.462 with six homers, 46 RBI and eight stolen bases in 87 games at Triple-A.

Nick Buss went 1-for-1 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored against the Mariners on Saturday.

Buss knocked a double with the bases loaded that plated two, and he also walked and scored in the contest. The 29-year-old is a non-roster invite to Angels camp and will need a lot more days like Saturday to stick on the active roster into April.
Mar 5 - 7:20 PM

Angels signed OF Nick Buss to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Buss, a 28-year-old left-handed-hitting outfielder, slashed .296/.352/.408 with four home runs and 10 stolen bases in 92 games this past season for the Diamondbacks' Triple-A affiliate in Reno, Nevada. He seems highly doubtful to land an Opening Day roster spot with the Halos.

Diamondbacks signed OF Nick Buss to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old outfielder saw his power fall off a cliff during the 2014 season at Triple-A, but was still able to post a solid .299/.364/.382 slash line with five homers and 68 RBI in 136 games.

Athletics sent OF Nick Buss outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Athletics designated OF Nick Buss for assignment.

The A's needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster after Saturday's blockbuster trade with the Cubs, and Buss was the odd man out. Provided he passes through waivers, he should return to Triple-A Sacramento where he's hitting .270/.330/.365 with four homers and 40 RBI.

Dodgers designated OF Nick Buss for assignment.

Buss was batting just .261/.330/.391 in 104 plate appearances this season for Triple-A Albuquerque. But the 27-year-old outfielder tallied 17 home runs, 21 stolen bases, and 100 RBI in 131 games last season at Albuquerque and could draw interest on the waiver wire.

It's all available hands on deck for the Dodgers as they stride towards the postseason. The 26-year-old Buss excelled in his first season at Triple-A, hitting .303/.363/.525 with 17 homers, 100 RBI and 21 stolen bases in 131 games.
