Breslow agrees to two-year deal with Red Sox

By Jeff Louderback

Boston’s last unsigned arbitration-eligible player has agreed to terms. Left-handed reliever Craig Breslow signed a two-year deal with an option for a third year, according to Yahoo Sports’ Tim Brown.

The 32-year-old Breslow will make a guaranteed $6.25 million and can reach incentives that will give him as much as $10.15 million over the course of the contract.

Like Red Sox catcher Ryan Lavarnway, Breslow is a Yale graduate. He has a 3.00 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over seven Major League seasons with the Red Sox, Indians, Twins, A’s and Diamondbacks.

Last season, after he was acquired from Arizona for Matt Albers and Scott Podsednik, Breslow logged a 2.70 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP in 27 games for Boston.
