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 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.
