In need of another left-handed reliever to compliment Tommy Layne in the bullpen, the Boston Red Sox returned to a very familiar face.

According to Rob Bradford of WEEI, the Red Sox agreed to terms with Yale grad Craig Breslow on a one-year deal worth $2 million.
Breslow, who tends to be a reliable reliever, had the worst year of his career to date in 2014 as he posted a 5.96 ERA in 60 games and walked 28 while punching out just 37 men.

In his nine year big league career, Craig Breslow owns a 3.20 career ERA and only allows 0.8 homers per nine innings.
2015 will be Breslow’s fifth season as a member of the Boston Red Sox; he was a member of the team back in 2006, but spent all of 2007 in the minors and was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Indians in March of 2008. The team re-acquired him in 2012 at the trade deadline in exchange for Matt Albers and Scott Podsednik, although Podsednik refused Minor League assignment and re-signed with the Red Sox shortly after.

In 2013, Breslow played a key role in the Red Sox World Series championship run when he posted a 1.81 ERA in 61 games and did not surrender a run in seven appearances totaling seven innings in the ALDS and ALCS. The World Series on the other hand was rough for him as he allowed a pair of earned runs while only recording one out.
Breslow, whose decision came down to the Red Sox and Chicago Cubs, made it clear to WEEI that he strives to pitch better than he did last season:
“I’m not looking for sympathy. I recognize that in my mind, and I think quite pragmatically, 2014 was the complement to 2013. I wouldn’t undo any of that. I would gladly make that sacrifice. As much as this stinks, being able to contribute to a team that won a World Series is something that guys play for 20 years and never get a chance to do,” he added. “I think it’s kind of like I had the ultimate high of highs last year and the ultimate low of lows last year and in 2015 I’ll go back to being the same guy I was for six of the last seven years.”
