Veteran right-hander Scott Atchison has signed a minor league deal with the Twins, per SB Nation. The 39-year-old Atchison performed well for Cleveland last season and started out the same this year before a major collapse. He allowed 15 earned runs on 22 hits in his last 13 2/3 innings out of the bullpen and was released.
The Indians released pitcher Scott Atchison on Sunday, the team announced. Atchison was 1-1 with a 6.86 ERA over 19 2/3 innings of work. With Atchinson gone, the team called up pitcher Toru Murata on Sunday. Murata has never pitched in the majors and is scheduled to start Game 2 of the doubleheader at Baltimore on Sunday.
The Indians relief corps got a lot younger Tuesday when Austin Adams was promoted from Triple-A Columbus and fellow right-hander Scott Atchison was designated for assignment. Adams proved impressive in his last stint with the team. His fastball peaked at 100 mph and he compiled a 2.38 ERA. The 39-year-old Atchison began the season on a roll, even earning appearances as the setup man, before collapsing. He has allowed 10 earned runs in his last nine innings pitched.
As expected, the Indians activated pitcher Scott Atchison from the disabled list prior to Saturday's game. Atchison has been recovering from an ankle injury and completed a minor league rehab assignment at Double-A Akron. To make room, the Indians optioned C.C. Lee to Triple-A Columbus. Lee allowed a run in 2/3 of an inning in his only appearance with the Indians.
