The Boston Red Sox look to be handing the leadership of the front office over to one of their alumni.
Craig Breslow, who pitched for the team in 2006 and from 2012-2015, has been offered the team’s top job in baseball operations, sources told Rob Bradford of WEEI.
Breslow has not yet accepted the offer as the sides are still working through contract details, sources told The Athletic.
The 43-year-old spent the last five seasons working various roles in the Chicago Cubs’ front office. He most recently served as the team’s assistant general manager and vice president of pitching.
The Red Sox fired chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom in September after three seasons. Boston has missed the postseason in each of the last two years and only has one playoff berth in the last five seasons.
