Up next on our review of the 2014 Dodgers is outfielder Nick Buss, who began the season on the 40-man roster but ended up in the A's organization.
What went right
Buss began the year on the 40-man roster and as such was in his first big league spring training camp, at least until he was optioned to the minor league side on March 4.
After joining Oakland, Buss spent the rest of the year in Triple-A Sacramento, where he hit .339/.400/.516 with two home runs and 12 RBI in 15 games against his old teammates in Albuquerque.
What went wrong
Buss was 0-for-10 in his six spring training games, and that turned out to be his final time in a Dodgers uniform.
He hit .261/.330/.391 in 26 games with the Isotopes, and was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on May 1, then claimed off waivers by the Athletics on May 4. He was later designated for assignment by Oakland in July, then cleared waivers, was outrighted and ended his season in Sacramento.
Salary: in minors all season; Buss was on a 40-man roster for a second year, so his minimum salary in the minors was $81,500.
Game of the year
On April 10 at Reno, Buss was 3-for-4 with two runs batted in and a run scored.
Buss signed a minor league contract with the Diamondbacks with a non-roster invitation to spring training.
