OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics have recalled outfielder Travis Buck and pitchers Henry Rodriguez and John Meloan from the minors.
Buck, who was on the A's opening-day roster, hit .272 with five homers and 29 RBIs for Triple-A Sacramento. In two previous stints with the big league club, Buck had a .226 average with three homers and nine RBIs in 31 games.
Rodriguez was 2-1 with a 5.77 ERA with Sacramento. This is the right-hander's first trip to the majors.
Meloan is with his fourth organization this season, having previously spent time at the Triple-A level with Cleveland, Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh before being claimed off waivers by Oakland on Sept. 2. The righty has 61 strikeouts in 68 innings this year with a 4.37 ERA.
