New Arrival: Scott Atchison, RP, Cleveland Indians

photo 5

Scott Atchison signed a minor league deal with the Indians this past January, and I would really like him to stick with the team, even if only at AAA.

Atchison was a 36th Round draft pick in 1994 by Seattle, did not signed. Was drafted again by Seattle in 1998, this time in the 49th Round out of TCU, and signed. From 1999 to 2002 he was a starting pitcher, but did not find much success. He started pitching out of the pen in 2003 while playing in AAA Tacoma, and found his stride. Since 2005 I think he has put up pretty good number in AAA, and has been serviceable when called up to the majors. He was actually pretty great over 51.1 innings with Boston in 2012 (0.994 WHIP, 1.58 ERA). Last season with the Mets he did not light the world on fire, but again was a middle of the road pen arm.  I don’t really see him starting the season with the Tribe, but if he sticks it out in AAA I could totally see him getting called up to help once we start losing guys.
