Craig Breslow Might Be Returning to Boston

Craig Breslow

Veteran pitcher Craig Breslow has yet to find a new home and so the free agent is rumored to be considering staying with the Red Sox. This is in spite of the fact that his current team declined to pick up Breslow’s $4 million option for 2014.

There have never been that many successful Jewish baseball players. Pitcher Sandy Koufax and slugger Hank Greenberg are among the acceptations. Breslow, a Yale University graduate, grew up in a Jewish home in Connecticut, went to Hebrew School and even fasted while playing with his team on Yom Kippur. Not quite like Koufax who famously skipped a World Series game for the Dodgers in 1965 because it fell on Yom Kippur.

The 34 year old who has also pitched for Oakland, Toronto and Cleveland in his career has been looking for a new home for some time now. Breslow had talks with the New York Mets, Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox.

The Red Sox might be interested in resigning Breslow because of the poor pool of talent available in this year’s free agent market. The relief pitcher had a 5.96 ERA in 60 appearances last season with a 2-4 record and only one save.
