Report: Mets showing interest in reliever Craig Breslow


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Mets have shown interest in free agent reliever Craig Breslow, sources told FOX Sports. The left-handed reliever went 2-4 with a 5.96 ERA and 1.86 WHIP in 60 relief appearances for Boston in 2014.

Red Sox decline option on RHP Craig Breslow


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) What was expected has become reality - the Red Sox have declined their option on left-handed reliever Craig Breslow. He had a $100,000 buyout.

Breslow followed up a brilliant 2013 with a terrible year. He allowed 91 baserunners in 54 1/3 innings and compiled a 5.96 ERA out of the bullpen.


Red Sox LHP Craig Breslow feels destined for free agency


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Red Sox reliever Craig Breslow is pessimistic about the team picking up his $4 million option for 2015 after a poor season.

The left-hander pitched 54 1/3 innings in 60 games for Boston and compiled a disturbing 5.96 ERA. He believes that last statistic will preclude the Sox from moving forward with him and will result in free agency.

"If you were to strictly look at 2014 with blinders without what had happened previously and what you might expect going forward, $4 million is probably a hefty price tag," he told WEEI.com. "But I think if (you) look at the body of work from 2008-13, you can better appreciate the pitcher I've been and the pitcher I will (be)."

Breslow, who yielded five runs without retiring a batter in his last appearance, performed well in the title season of 2013, compiling a 1.81 ERA in 61 games.

Red Sox place Kelly Johnson, Craig Breslow on trade waivers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The pair are the first Red Sox players to hit revocable waivers this August, but as many players are tossed on trade waivers in August, the move doesn't necessarily mean either is in the works to be traded.

Craig Breslow to throw again Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Red Sox reliever Craig Breslow (shoulder) will make one more rehab appearance for Triple-A Pawtucket Monday before the team reassesses his situation, per MLB.com.

"We feel like we've got a very good relief corps that is currently with us," manager John Farrell said. "The overall strike-throwing ability of the group down there is very good. And when you're pressed into using four and five guys on a given night, the ability to have two guys who can go multiple innings is key for us.

"It puts a little bit of strain and stress on the day following, which is where we are today, but we're comfortable with where we are right now."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Craig Breslow happy with first spring outing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Red Sox reliever Craig Breslow pitched in a game for the first time this spring Monday. Pitching in a minor-league game against Class A batters, Breslow allowed one hit and struck out one in one inning.

"I've got not major complaints or problems. It went as expected and planned," Breslow said, per MLB.com. "I didn't feel any discomfort. That was the first time I'd been on the hill in a competitive situation in some time.

"I felt comfortable using my whole repertoire. I recognize some places where I can improve. I need to build up arm strength, but for a first step, it went well."


Craig Breslow throws batting practice session Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Red Sox pitcher Craig Breslow threw 20 pitches in his first live batting practice session Friday, CSNNE.com reports.

Breslow is confident he'll be ready for the opener, but manager John Farrell isn't sure the pitcher will be ready in time. "It's probably premature to [say he'll be ready]," said Farrell. "[Breslow] feels confident he will be, but I think we also have to be realistic, too, and take a look at him in those three outings next week. Getting him up to game speed takes a little bit longer than others. But once he gets over that hump, he's off and going. And he's getting there."


Craig Breslow expects to be ready for opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Red Sox reliever Craig Breslow still believes he will be able to pitch by the time the regular season opens, despite the fact he has yet to appear in a game in the spring.

"I think I'll be ready, but I don't make the final decision, obviously," he told CSNBoston.com. "I feel good, I feel strong. We talked about from the beginning that I don't need a ton of games, I just need some repetitions and that was something I could kind of do on the side, throwing bullpens etc."

The team has brought Breslow along slowly this spring, after he dealt with shoulder soreness a year ago. The veteran made 71 appearances including last seasons including the playoffs, so the Red Sox are simply trying to limit his workload.

Breslow may make his spring debut Monday against the Orioles, and would need two or three more appearances to be fully ready.

"As far I'm concerned," he said, "my plan is to get ready to pitch in Baltimore on Opening Day. I don't know what's in play from their side, but I'm getting ready for Opening Day."

The reliever posted a 1.81 ERA in 59 2/3 innings last year.
