Indians extend Scott Atchison

He came to camp as a 38-year old non-roster invitee hoping to hang on for one more season in the sun. By May, he was not just a fixture in the pen, but a favorite of manager Terry Francona. Now here we are in August and Scott Atchison, the bullpen’s jack of all trades, has received a contract extension. He will toil in the pen in 2015 with a club option for 2016. “Old-Man Atch”...

How old is Indians pitcher Scott Atchison? 'His first career strikeout was Babe Ruth'

Indians reliever Scott Atchison is 38 years old, which is about 10 years older than the team's average player age of 28.7. While he's not the oldest player on the team -- Jason Giambi is 41 -- the gray-haired right-hander surely wears the part of the grizzled veteran quite well. Just ask his youthful teammates, who spent the better part of Tuesday night having fun at Atchison...

Journey Man Scott Atchison Looks To Return to 2012 Form

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...

2013 Mets Projection: Scott Atchison, RHP

The Mets made possibly their most underrated signings of the offseason in late-January when they signed right-handed relief pitcher Scott Atchison to a minor league contract. Atchison, 36, has bounced around baseball in his 14-year professional career. He came out of TCU as a starting pitcher in the late ’90s. Drafted by the Mariners, he rose up through the system, but stalled...

Mets ink Scott Atchison to a minor-league deal

The writing was on the wall, but it's now official, as Scott Atchison has signed on with a team other than the Red Sox (and not actually in Japan!), as the Mets agreed to a minor-league deal with the reliever (via MLBTR). I'll miss Atch. We paid him next to nothing (less than $1.4 million per B-R) and got three solid years out of him. The first two years he appeared in low...

WEEI: Atchison not tendered a contract

Scott Atchison will not be tendered a contract, becoming a free agent for the second straight offseason, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com. It's not a huge surprise. The Red Sox have a number of roster issues to deal with before tonight's non-tender deadline, and it's hard to prioritize a 36-year old reliever who vastly outperformed expectations last year with a...

Atchison stays with Sox after being DFA'd

Ten days ago when the Red Sox signed Cody Ross they designated Scott Atchison for assignment. His waiver period passed and no one claimed him, so Scott heads to Pawtucket and will be in Florida for Spring Training, reports Maureen Mullen. I have a soft spot for Atchison, if only for his excellent first name. But he's been relatively successful for Boston as well, considering...
