Twins' Craig Breslow: Decent start to 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Breslow has given up two runs over 5.1 innings of work to begin 2017.

Breslow has seen his workload pick up recently and has his ERA sitting at 3.38 with four strikeouts and two walks. The 36-year-old pitched just 14 innings in the majors last season, allowing seven earned runs.

Twins' Craig Breslow: Officially added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Breslow was added to the Twins' 40-man roster Monday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Breslow, who had been attending Twins camp on a minor-league deal, had an opt-out clause in his contract that would have expired Monday if the Twins hadn't added him to the 40-man roster, but there was never much doubt that would materialize in light of his excellent spring. After submitting a 4.93 ERA over the past three seasons, Breslow, 36, decided to revamp his delivery over the offseason, and the change seems to have salvaged his career. He's delivered a tidy 1.50 ERA in six innings this spring, though a 5:7 K:BB ratio suggests that he still needs to iron things out a bit. Nonetheless, the Twins remain intrigued enough by his adjustments to include him on the Opening Day roster, though he'll likely be slated for low-leverage work out of the bullpen initially.

Twins' Craig Breslow: Likely to win bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Breslow is likely to be added to the 40-man roster before he can opt out of his contract next week, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

He's thrown 6.1 scoreless innings this spring, including an exhibition outing against Team USA of the World Baseball Classic. The Twins are unlikely to keep three lefty relievers in the bullpen, so this could mean Ryan O'Rourke and Buddy Boshers will begin the season in the minors.

Twins' Craig Breslow: Inks deal with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Breslow signed a minor league deal with the Twins on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Breslow turned down better offers to sign with Minnesota, which had the worst bullpen ERA in the American League last season (4.63). The journeyman reliever spent last season with the Triple-A affiliates of both Miami and Texas, compiling a 7.01 ERA over 25.2 innings. He's a long shot to make the majors out of spring training, but Breslow says he's made changes to his delivery with the intention of consistently being used against left-handed hitters.

Craig Breslow: Released from minor league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Breslow was released from his minor league deal with the Rangers on Monday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Breslow signed on with Texas just over two weeks ago, but the 35-year-old failed to make an impact at Triple-A Round Rock. It's unclear what Breslow's next move may be, but the journeyman will likely look elsewhere for a clearer path back to a big league bullpen.
