The Padres designated RHP Billy Buckner for assignment.
One and done for Buckner. He made the spot-start on Saturday night for the Padres and had mixed results. Much like teammate Blaine Boyer, he will have to clear waivers. If and when he does, he can either become a free agent or accept an assignment to Triple-A Tucson.ANALYST: David Kerr
Carlos Gonzalez (knee) was removed from Friday's game for precautionary reasons.
To borrow one from Adam Carolla: Sssssssssssssssssssssshocking. Gonzalez has managed just 717 plate appearances combined in the last two years, and fantasy owners are all too familiar with his health woes. When healthy in the last two seasons, he's struck out a fair bit more than he ever has before, so we can longer treat CarGo as a top option when healthy. There's definitely upside, but it's hard to imagine him reaching it. Analysis: Brett Talley
