Atchison signs with Mets; Shoppach with Mariners

It wasn't likely that Scott Atchison was returning to the Red Sox, and there was probably no chance that Kelly Shoppach would come back either.

Those two assumptions turned into facts on Tuesday, as both players have found homes with other teams.

Atchison has signed a minor league deal with the Mets, according to Jon Heyman via mlbtraderumors.com.

Shoppach, who was dealt to the Mets midway through the 2012 season, has signed with the Mariners, according to Peter Abraham.
