Timlin back for 2008

The Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox and Timlin have come to terms on a one year deal worth about three million.

Mike is 42 this season, but proved he can still pitch at a major league level. He pitched 55.1 innings in ’07, and ended with a 3.42 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. Timlin also played very well during the playoffs, and has proven again and again that he is a big game pitcher.

The only potential issue with Timlin could be his health. He went on the DL last season from May 3rd to June 9th with shoulder tendinitis. The Sox were then forced to bring up J.C. Romero, who was later released by the team. Barring a large stint on the DL in ’08, Timlin should continue to play a key role in the bullpen.
