Angels add lefty reliever Ryan Buchter to 40-man roster

first_imgThe Angels added veteran reliever Ryan Buchter to their 40-man roster on Sunday, a strong indication that they plan for him to be on the roster whenever the season starts after the coronavirus crisis subsides.Buchter, 33, had not allowed a run in five innings this spring.He has a career 2.86 ERA over parts of five major league seasons, most recently with the Oakland A’s. Buchter had to settle for a minor-league deal with the Angels just after the opening of camp, most likely because last season he struggled against right-handed hitters. The new three-batter rule reduces the value of situational left-handed relievers.In order to clear a spot for Buchter on the 40-man roster, the Angels designated Taylor Cole for assignment.
