Twins' Craig Breslow: Slowed down by age
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Breslow has an ERA of 4.82 in 28 innings this season for Minnesota.

The former 2002 draft pick is with his third team in three years, and has seen his ERA increase in each of those seasons. Now at 36 years old, it's tough to imagine the veteran will be improving his play anytime soon. He only has 5.5 K/9 and has yet to record a hold in 2017, severely limiting his fantasy potential this year to owners in all league types.

Twins' Craig Breslow: Pitching well in low-pressure spots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Breslow has a 2.89 ERA and 1.13 WHIP across 18.2 innings this season.

The numbers are good for the veteran left-hander so far, but the Twins' record of 4-16 in games he has appeared in illustrates his limited role in the bullpen. Breslow has a low BB/9 (2.4) and K/9 (4.3), but could provide some value in deeper formats if he maintains his current form.

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 he's posted a 3.38 ERA 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.
