Red Sox Exercise Option On Scott Atchison

The Red Sox will exercise their option on Scott Atchison, bringing the reliever back to the team for the 2011 season.

While Atchison was not spectacular by any means in 2010, it was a fairly obvious move to bring him back. Providing decent middle-inning relief, Atchison comes incredibly cheap and is, if nothing else, dependably average. The Sox have a pretty empty bullpen, so every non-disaster arm counts.

Atchison returned to the United States after two years in Japan to bring his daughter closer to the doctors she needed to treat a bone condition she was born with. The Red Sox picked him up as a free agent, allowing him a chance to earn a spot in the bullpen out of Spring Training.
