A's place Buck on disabled list
Buck homered and went 3-for-4 in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against Texas, but the injury to his side got progressively worse as the game wore on. He sat out the second game before going on the disabled list for the fourth time in his career.
Buck is batting .235 with three homers and nine RBIs this season. He hasn't committed an error in 141 games, third-longest streak by an outfielder in A's history.
