Breslow agreed to a minor-league deal with the Marlins on Friday, Rob Bradford of WEEI reports. The 35-year-old will be guaranteed $1.5 million if he makes the team. Breslow posted a 4.15 ERA over 65 innings pitched in 2015 with the Red Sox. The Marlins have a middle-of-the-pack bullpen, meaning the veteran does have a chance to make the team should he pitch well throughout spring training.
Red Sox pitcher Craig Breslow (0-4) surrendered five hits and two earned runs in 5 1/3 innings in a 2-0 loss to the Indians on Saturday. He struck out two. The veteran southpaw acquitted himself reasonably well in his two starts at the tail end of 2015, amassing an impressive 1.98 ERA over 9 1/3 innings. Breslow's undoing Saturday was the long ball, with both Carlos Santana and Ryan Raburn taking him deep. After pitching on a one-year contract in 2015, the 35-year-old Breslow's future is uncertain.
Red Sox pitcher Craig Breslow, who was first in a line of relievers to pitch nine innings Saturday, may be in line for another start as the Red Sox will use their bullpen once again for one of the games against Cleveland at the end of the week, the Boston Globe reports. The Red Sox will use another collection of relievers, essentially taking Eduardo Rodriguez's rotation spot. Breslow pitched four scoreless innings in Saturday's win, but it wasn't enough innings to get the win, which went to second reliever Heath Hembree.
Red Sox reliever Craig Breslow came through with a strong effort Saturday, throwing four scoreless innings and giving up two hits and two walks while striking out two. He didn't last long enough to be eligible for the win, but Breslow got the Red Sox 'bullpen day' off to a rousing start. He'll likely return to relief work for the final week of the season.
The Red Sox activated reliever Craig Breslow from the paternity list Monday. To clear a roster spot, Travis Shaw was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket.
