Minor League Signings: Padres Re-Sign OF Travis Buck

USA TODAY Sports

It seems the AAA El Paso Chihuahuas will have another carryover from their days as the Tucson Padres. As reported by SB Nation's own Chris Cotillo, outfielder Travis Buck has inked another minor league deal with the Padres organization.

Cotillo went on to add that, like infielders Brooks Conrad and Brandon Wood, Buck was not extended an invitation to big league spring training. This stands to reason when you consider either Buck's performance last year or San Diego's glut of major league caliber outfielders; combined, it's a no-brainer.

Buck batted .256/ .296/ .464 in 135 plate-appearances over just 35 games with Tucson last season, his first year since 2006 with no time spent in the majors. His major league batting line is .243/ .316/ .399 in 910 plate-appearances spread over parts of six seasons with Oakland, Cleveland, and Houston. If we see him in San Diego at any point this year... oh, man, I don't even want to think about the chain of events that would lead to that. Stay healthy, major leaguers.
