Breslow rehab update: perfect inning today

ARLINGTON, Texas — Lefthanded reliever Craig Breslow pitched a perfect inning for Triple A Pawtucket this afternoon against Durham. He struck out one and threw nine pitches, six for strikes.

Breslow, who is on the disabled list with a sore shoulder, has now appeared in five minor league games and thrown 3 2/3 innings. After a couple of rocky outings, he has improved in his last two.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said earlier this week that Breslow would be evaluated after his appearance over the weekend. If he is ready, Breslow could join the Red Sox on Monday and give the team a second lefty in the bullpen.

Check back for an update later once we speak to Farrell.
