Red Sox Designate Atchison, Avoid Batter #667, Clear Room for Cody Ross

The Boston Red Sox have designated right-handed pitcher Scott Atchison for assignment, clearing room for newly-signed outfielder Cody Ross, according to the team.

Atchison, 35, has seen limited action in the Majors -- just 158 innings over a sporadic 5 seasons. He has a career 4.09 ERA, and for you religious types, Atchison has faced exactly 666 batters in his big league career. Personally, I'd quit there and spook everyone with it.
