Atchison clears waivers, invited to spring training


Scott Atchison (Dave Letizi)
Scott Atchison, who was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on January 26 in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Cody Ross, has cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket. As part of the move, the 35-year-old right-hander will receive an invite to spring training. Atchison compiled a 3.26 ERA with a win and a save in 30.1 innings out of the Boston bullpen in 2011. He spent the remainder of the season with Pawtucket, posting a 6-2 record with a 2.64 ERA and 5 saves in 61.1 innings out of the PawSox bullpen. 

Atchison is entering his third year with the organization and will be in the mix to land a spot in Boston's bullpen during the spring.
