Grant Buckner added to Kannapolis roster
Former Herbert Hoover High School and West Virginia University standout Grant Buckner went 2-for-4 with two RBIs in his season debut with the Kannapolis Intimidators Monday night.
Buckner was moved by the Chicago White Sox from extended spring training to the Kannapolis roster earlier Monday and joined the Class A South Atlantic League team for its game at Hickory. He batted eighth and was the Intimidators' designated hitter in a 4-3 loss.
Kannapolis will be in Charleston May 24-27 for a four-game series with the West Virginia Power at Appalachian Power Park.
