Padres sign Billy Buckner to minor league deal

USA TODAY Sports

Per Corey Brock, the Padres have signed pitcher Billy Buckner to a minor league deal.

In those five seasons, Buckner has appeared in just 43 games, split nearly down the middle between starting and relief. He set a career high with 16 games (13 starts) for Arizona in 2009. He got rocked to the tune of a 6.40 ERA, and was knocked around even harder in 2010, going 0-3 with a 11.08 ERA in three games. Buckner didn't get another shot in the majors until last year, when he got into seven games (including two starts) for the Angels. He was 1-0 with a 4.67 ERA in those 17.1 innings. According to Rotoworld, Buckner kept his arm in shape depite not going to spring training with any team. After his extended spring training, he'll most likely be headed to El Paso
