Early this morning, the Red Sox Twitter account informed that Craig Colbrunn won't return for the 2015 season. Greg Colbrunn had his first season with the Red Sox last year, helping the team to lead the Major League with an average of 5.27 runs per game. As a contrast, this season the team only averaged a mediocre 3.91 runs per game.

On June 4, the 44 year-old-coach was compelled to leave for medical reasons after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage during the Red Sox road trip in Cleveland. Colbrunn missed 24 games and returned to the team on June 30.
This season, the Red Sox were almost the last team on many hitting categories, such as runs (634, 11th place), OPS (.684, 13th place) and avg (.244, 13th place). We wish the best for Greg Colbrunn and hope that he can find a place where his talents are required. Thank you for the 2013 season.
