The Angels have signed 29-year old righty starter/reliever Billy Buckner to a minor league deal. Buckner pitched in 27 games (all starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Red Sox last year and he was 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. He last pitched in the majors back in 2010 with the Diamondbacks. Buckner has pitched in 36 games (21 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 6-11 with a 6.25 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. He will likely start the 2013 season in AAA-ball and be an insurance policy in case a starter goes down due to injury.
