MLB.com’s Jane Lee reports that the A’s have claimed outfielder Nick Buss off waivers from the Dodgers and sent him to Triple-A Sacramento.

Buss was designated for assignment by Los Angeles to clear a 40-man roster spot for right-hander Red Patterson, who made his major league debut in a spot start last week against the Minnesota Twins.

Buss was batting just .261/.330/.391 with one home run in 26 games this season for the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but he hit .303/.363/.525 with 17 homers, 100 RBI, and 21 stolen bases in 131 games last year and could be of value to Oakland at some point this summer.
