Former Red Sox reliever Scott Atchison has signed a minor-league contract with the Mets that includes an invitation to spring training.

Atchison was non-tendered in November after appearing in 42 games and posting a 1.58 earned run average.

The righthander, who turns 37 in March, went on the disabled list in July with a torn elbow ligament. He elected not to have surgery and returned in September. Atchison appeared in five games and did not allow a run. But he was squeezed out of a crowded Red Sox bullpen.

Atchison spent parts of three seasons with the Sox. He pitched 141.2 innings over 102 games with a 3.18 ERA. Atchison took on many roles, even starting a game in 2010.
