Indians Sign RHP Atchison For Next Season

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians have signed reliever Scott Atchison to a contract for next season.

Atchison’s deal includes a team option in 2016. Financial terms were not immediately available.

The 38-year-old Atchison has been major contributor out of Cleveland’s bullpen this season, going 6-0 with a 2.95 ERA in 53 appearances. The 38-year-old signed a free agent minor league contract with the Indians in January and made the 25-man roster in spring training. He pitched in 50 games last season for the New York Mets.

Atchison has held hitters to a .218 average and ranks among AL relief leaders in wins, inherited runners scored and innings.

Atchison is 16-10 with a 3.51 ERA in 258 major league games since breaking in with Seattle in 2004. He previously pitched for Indians manager Terry Francona in Boston.
