Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Sunday 27 March 2016 at 7:28 am

The Los Angeles Angels have acquired 24-year old righty starter/reliever Troy Scribner from the Houston Astros for cash considerations.  Scribner pitched in 29 games (13 starts) in A-ball last year and he was 2-6 with 1 save, a 5.49 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP.  He worked 100 innings last year and he only gave up 94 hits while whiffing 111 batters…..but he also walked 57 batters, which got him into a lot of trouble.  Scribner has now pitched in 63 games (31 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 16-13 with 2 saves, a 3.64 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP.  This was a nice flier for the Angels to take, as Scribner appears to have good stuff….and he pitched well until last year.

The Angels have designated 29-year old righty starter/reliever Billy Buckner for assignment.  Buckner pitched in 7 games (2 starts) for the Angels this year and he was 1-0 with a 4.67 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  He has also pitched in 16 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Angels so far this year in which he is 7-2 with a 4.60 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP.  Buckner has been a good sport for the Angels this year, as this is the 3rd time that they have DFA’d him so far in 2013.  He will likely accept another outright assignment to AAA if he clears waivers again (which is likely).

UPDATE:  (8./26/2013) – The Angels have outrighted Billy Bucker to AAA.
