The Red Sox announced their deal with lefty reliever Craig Breslow, which was agreed to on Saturday. He received two years with a team option for 2015. Sources said the deal is worth $6.25 million deal with the option worth $3.9 million.

This from the Sox:

In 63 appearances for the Diamondbacks and Red Sox last season, Breslow, 32, went 3-0 with a 2.70 ERA.

Following his July 31 acquisition from Arizona in exchange for Matt Albers and Scott Podsednik, Breslow made 23 appearances for Boston, 20 of which were scoreless.

In addition, with the Red Sox, he held opponents to a .206 average (14-for-68), which included a .184 mark (7-for-38) against left-handed hitters.

The 2012 season marked the second stint in the Red Sox organization for Breslow, who also pitched for Boston in 2006 and for Triple-A Pawtucket in both 2006 and 2007.
