  1. Scott Atchison 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Atchison pitched for his third team in as many seasons in 2014, parlaying good control (1.8 BB/9) and a high groundball rate (58.8%) into an extension for the Indians through 2015. In addition to an uptick in velocity on his fastball, Atchison was getting more velocity on his secondary pitches, and it paid off in the form of a career-high 9.2% swinging-strike rate. With his ability to get hitters to put the ball on the ground, Atchison is often called up on with runners on base, and he managed to rack up 12 double plays last season. At age-39, he'll continue to serve in middle relief for Cleveland, while there's little chance that he'll pick up more than the occasional rogue save.
  2. Scott Atchison 2014 Preseason Outlook
    Atchison posted a 1.58 ERA in 42 appearances out of the bullpen for the Red Sox in 2012, but an elbow injury cost him two months and resulted in his release. He signed a minor league deal with the Mets, earning a bullpen spot in the spring. Bone spurs in his elbow and a groin strain he suffered while warming up in his first game back cost him two months from early May to July. Atchison struggled the last two months of the season, and was non-tendered in December before the Indians signed him to a minor league contract in January.
  3. Scott Atchison 2013 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  4. Scott Atchison 2012 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  5. Scott Atchison 2011 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  6. Scott Atchison 2010 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  7. Scott Atchison 2008 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  8. Scott Atchison 2006 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  9. Scott Atchison 2005 Preseason Outlook
    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.
