RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Atchison continued a good run in Boston, serving as a long reliever until he suffered an elbow injury in July. It was diagnosed as a torn UCL in his right elbow, but he was able to avoid surgery. He rested for a couple of months and was able to return in September. He was non-tendered for the second straight offseason, making him a free agent in November. The Red Sox value his commitment, his acceptance of the long-relief role, and they way he has filled that role. That is something that has been in short supply in Boston the last year-and-a-half. If he returns to Boston, Atchison will have the same role in 2013.

2012

Any value Atchison could have given Boston last season was blocked by the fine pitching of Alfredo Aceves. As a result, Atchison was left to toil at Triple-A. Although the Red Sox declined to pick up his option for 2012, he has given the organization two relatively productive years given his salary scale. With Aceves likely moving to a specific role in 2012, the Red Sox could bring Atchison back to fulfill a stretched-out role pitching multiple relief innings or starting.

2011

After bouncing between the major leagues and Triple-A early on, Atchison was finally allowed to stay in June. He served primarily as a long reliever for Boston with one spot start, and was effective going multiple innings. He has three pitches and throws them for strikes. He was the most reliable of the team's middle-relief corps. The Red Sox picked up his option for 2011, and he's assured of a similar role again this time around.

2010

Atchison had a 1.70 ERA with the Hanshin Tigers in Japan last season and last pitched in the majors with the Giants in 2007. He'll compete for a set-up role this spring.

2008

After spending most of his career in the minors, Atchison saw his most significant work in the big leagues for San Francisco last season, posting a 4.11 ERA and 1.370 WHIP over 30.2 innings. He can strike out batters, but he's prone to the long ball and he'll never be used as more than a middle reliever. Atchison has agreed to pitch in Japan in 2008.

2006

A spring-training elbow injury delayed the start of Atchinson's season last year. When he finally made it back he logged a 4.15 ERA in 10 appearances with a 17/5 K/BB at Triple-A Tacoma before his September promotion to Seattle. Four of his six outings in middle relief for Seattle were scoreless and he struck out nine with one walk. Atchison has potential, but it's going to take a great spring, or an injury, to crack the M's bullpen.

2005

Atchison took over as closer at Triple-A Tacoma after George Sherrill was promoted to Seattle and then followed him to the big-league club on July 31, where he pitched middle relief in 25 games. Atchison, who was named to the mid-season All-Star team, showed good command at Tacoma (3/1 K/BB ratio in 69.3 IP), but gave up too many hits. His numbers were a little better in the majors. He's not considered one of the organization's top prospects and is likely to be back in Triple-A for 2005.
