Reliever Scott Atchison Optioned to Pawtucket

by

Right handed reliever Scott Atchison has been optioned to Pawtucket to make room for outfielder Josh Reddick.

"Scotty, unfortunately has been that guy because he has options. I think he understands., It's frustrating but I think he knows we like him as a pitcher and sometimes guys get on that shuttle. We were in a potential bind and we were because we need a healthy outfielder," manager Terry Francona said before Saturday's game.

Atchison is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in nine games.
