The Cleveland Indians signed free agent reliever Scott Atchison to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training camp, where he’ll have a chance to win a spot in the Tribe’s bullpen.

The 37-year-old appeared in 50 games for the Mets last season, despite two trips to the disabled list. He posted a 4.37 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 45.1 innings with 28 strikeouts. He became a free agent last month when the Mets non-tendered him.

The Indians may also be zeroing in on another former Met according to ESPN’s Jerry CrasnickJeff Francoeur, 30, is close to signing a minor league deal with Cleveland. Frenchy batted a combined .204/.238/.298 last season between the Royals and Giants.
