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.

    Craig Breslow, Edward Mujica getting plenty of work in Red Sox pen

    Red Sox starting pitchers have a 6.24 ERA this season, worst in the Major Leagues. As a result, the bullpen has had to pitch 49 and two thirds inning this year, second-highest total in baseball. Craig Breslow has pitched nine and two thirds scoreless innings. Edward Mujica (2.70 ERA in six and two third innings) and Robbie Ross (1.42 in six and a third) have also performed well under a heavy early-season workload. A 19-inning game against the Yankees helped increase the innings total for the bullpen. "You monitor the workload of every individual guy," manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com. "Our goal is to continue to try to stretch our starters out as best as possible. To keep a bullpen that's successful, healthy and strong requires an equally strong rotation."

Ross, Breslow and Layne will definitely pitch out of the bullpen, but Wright might be needed for the rotation, if Joe Kelly (biceps) can't start April 11 against the Yankees. If Wright was optioned to the minors, he wouldn't be able to be recalled for that start. Unless a roster spot opens due to injury, a player must spend 10 days in the minors following a demotion.
