Biography:
Atkins will enter his second season with the Somerset Patriots and in the Atlantic League. The righty began the 2013 season in Somerset, where he made seven starts before his contract was purchased by the Atlanta Braves organization in late May. Prior to leaving, Atkins went 3-2 with a 3.97 ERA for the Patriots, including 39 strikeouts over 43 innings of work. He later went 5-2 with a 3.47 ERA in 17 games (16 starts) for Double-A Mississippi to end the 2013 campaign.
 
Atkins was signed by Somerset again for the 2015 season, but signed to play in Taiwan before the end of spring training.
 
The Gibsonville, North Carolina resident has made appearances in three different seasons at the Major League level: 2009-10 with the Chicago Cubs and 2011 with the Baltimore Orioles. Atkins appeared in 10 games (three starts) over those three years in the majors and tallied 17 strikeouts over 22.2 innings pitched.
 
Last year, Atkins split time between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket in the Boston Red Sox organization. Overall, the 6’4” hurler earned six wins with two saves and struck out 151 batters over 131.1 innings of work.
 
The 13-year pro owns a career 88-74 record in the minor leagues with a 4.29 ERA and 1,182 strikeouts, including 122 games (94 starts) at the Triple-A level.
