PHOENIX -- Pitchers Billy Buckner and Blaine Boyer, who were designated for assignment on Sunday, have cleared waivers and outrighted to Triple-A El Paso.

Buckner and Boyer have accepted the assignment and will report to El Paso on Wednesday.

San Diego manager Bud Black said Sunday that he he's hopeful both will stay in the organization.

Buckner's stay in San Diego was short -- like one-day short -- as he was added to the roster Saturday and started against the Cubs, allowing three runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings in a loss.

Boyer tossed two scoreless innings of relief Thursday against the Cubs. It was his first Major League appearance since 2011 when he was with the Mets.
