Mets sign reliever Atchison...

The Mets have signed Scott Atchison to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.  Atchison when available was a solid reliever for the Red Sox the problem is just how available will he be.  See Atchison has a torn elbow ligament in his elbow but decided to not have TJ surgery.  After taking two months off he pitched well to end the season but the question is how long will it hold up...


Atchison, 36, went 2-1 with a 1.58 ERA in 42 relief appearances for the Boston Red Sox last season. However, he missed two months in 2012 with a torn elbow ligament and passed on undergoing Tommy John surgery. He made five late-season appearances after the two-month absence. He was non-tendered by the Red Sox in December. source ESPN NY
