Travis Buck promoted to Kane County

Bah. It had to happen, I guess, but I'm gonna miss seeing T-Buck coming in at number three for the Vancouver Canadians.

The official press release follows:

VANCOUVER - The Oakland Athletics first round supplemental draft pick and former Vancouver Canadian Travis Buck has been promoted to the A's affiliate in Kane County. Buck made quite an impact during his stay in Vancouver, batting .361 in 9 games, amassing 13 hits, including a double and a pair of home runs. Buck's slugging percentage during his brief stay in Vancouver was a whopping .556.

Buck was the first round supplemental pick of the A's (36th overall) out of Arizona State University. Buck played three seasons at Arizona State and was an important part of the team's run in the 2005 College World Series, playing multiple positions at Arizona State including third base and outfield. In three seasons, Buck's batting average has gone up every year, from .326 in 2003 to .373 in 2004 to a fantastic .382 in 2005. Buck had 147 RBI's in three years and 272 hits over the same time frame. Buck also had 53 doubles during his time at ASU.

Buck was born on Richland, Washington and is the nephew of former Seattle Mariner Arv Morfin. Buck was a Maroon and Gold scholar at Arizona State and was a member of the National Honour Society in high school.

The Vancouver Canadians are proud to add Travis Buck to the prestigious list of alumni including players such as Nick Swisher and Rich Harden.
