A second round selection of the Texas Rangers in the 2010 MLB Draft, Buckel bypassed a scholarship to Pepperdine University to live out his lifelong dream of being a professional baseball player. Since being drafted, his credentials include being a Rangers MiLB Organizational All-Star in 2012, when he went 10-8 with a 2.49 ERA in 26 games (23 starts) between two levels and reached as high as Double A.

A product of Simi Valley High School in Thousand Oaks, California, Buckel hails from the same alma mater as Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver. Not a fan of a specific MLB team, his baseball idols include Greg Maddux, Barry Zito, Derek Jeter and Shawn Green. Aside from baseball, the 22-year-old likes to listen to music, write screenplays, and act (even making an appearance in a Dick's Sporting Goods commercial).
