Red Sox, Craig Breslow Agree To Deal

January 24th: The Red Sox announced the deal, which includes a club option for 2015.

January 19th: The Red Sox have reached agreement with Craig Breslow on a two-year deal to avoid arbitration, according to Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter).  The Baratta Partners client will earn a guaranteed $6.25MM and could make up to $10.15MM over the course of the contract.  The deal is pending a physical.

Boston acquired the left-handed reliever from the Diamondbacks last summer for Matt Albers and Scott Podsednik.  In 63 relief outings for Arizona and Boston last year, Breslow posted a 2.70 ERA with 8.7 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9.  For his career, Breslow owns a 3.00 ERA with 7.8 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9.  

As the MLBTR Arbitration Tracker shows, the Red Sox have now signed all of their arbitration eligible players.
