Cleveland Indians v New York Yankees - Game Two

The Blue Jays have agreed to a minor-league deal with lefty Craig Breslow, according to FanRag’s Robert Murray. The deal includes a major-league spring training invite and would reportedly pay $1.25 million in the majors.

Breslow is the fourth veteran reliever to join the Jays in recent weeks, along with righties Al Alburquerque, Jake Petricka and John Axford. Breslow joins Aaron Loup and Matt Dermody as lefties squarely in the mix for an Opening Day roster spot.

Breslow, 37, pitched to a 5.09 ERA in 35.1 innings split between the Twins and Indians last season, his twelfth campaign in the majors. If he makes the majors with the Blue Jays, they’ll be his eighth team, joining the Padres, Red Sox, Indians, Twins, Athletics, Diamondbacks and Marlins.
