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.
