Gordon Edes and Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe are reporting that a Red Sox official indicated that the team had re-signed reliever Mike Timlin to a one-year, $3MM deal.
Timlin turns 42 in March. He showed his customary low strikeout rate and good control in 2007. The less predictable part is hits allowed – 10.97 per nine innings in ’06, 7.48 per nine innings in ’07. Luck plays a big part in that stat.
