Abad, who didn't pitch well after being acquired by Boston last season and was left off the postseason roster, was retained by the Red Sox because they recognize he can be an effective left-handed reliever, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Abad will move to lower-leverage situations in an attempt to rebuild his confidence, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. "There have been some pitches mislocated in the strike zone that have allowed some hitters back into at-bats," manager John Farrell said. "For the type of stuff that he has, and his overall strike-throwing ability... he's not a guy who is typically wild. We have to get some confidence rolling in his favor."

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Abad struggled throughout 2015, posting a 4.15 ERA after a sparkling 1.57 ERA in 2014. While his strikeout rate jumped to 8.5 K/9, his walk rate also jumped over a walk per inning up to 3.6 BB/9. The lefty could not keep the ball in the park, allowing 11 bombs over only 47.2 innings. He also had difficulties with lefties, allowing a .859 OPS and seven homers as he went from a guy with no platoon splits to reverse platoon splits. Abad will be in the mix for a spot in the Minnesota bullpen after signing a minor league contract with the Twins, but he'll need to find his 2014 form to stick in the big leagues.

2015

Abad spent his entire season in the majors in 2014 and responded with an excellent campaign in relief for the A's, compiling a 1.57 ERA over 57.1 innings. He excelled when he was asked to come in with men on base, not allowing an inherited runner to score until late August, and he ended the season having allowed only 13% of his inherited runners to score. Abad's lack of a strong platoon split, especially as a lefty, adds to his value as he fared well against righties (.475 OPS) and lefties (.527 OPS) in 2014. He figures to be one of the primary left-handed setup men in the A's bullpen in 2015.

2014

Abad put up decent overall numbers in the Nationals bullpen in 2013, but he wasn't particularly effective as a LOOGY (.790 OPS vs. lefties, .619 vs. righties) and got dealt to the A's in the offseason. He'll likely fill a similar role in Oakland.

2011

Abad got some big league exposure as a left-handed arm out of the bullpen, finding his way into 22 games in 2010. He showed good strikeout numbers in the low minors, but has seen his strikeout rate steadily decline as he has moved up the ladder. He's got a shot to break camp with the team, but will likely find himself ironing out the kinks in the minors to start the season.
