EDWARD MUJICA RUMORS

Edward Mujica Effective In Closer Role Amid Koji Uehara’s Struggles (Video)

It is unclear who will be the closing pitcher for the Boston Red Sox in the future. Koji Uehara has been struggling of late, and Edward Mujica — who’s signed through 2015 — has been effective in his place. And as The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham pointed out, Uehara isn’t a lock to return to Boston when he becomes a free agent at the conclusion of the season. Check out...

Red Sox’s Edward Mujica Looking Forward To Closing Games (Video)

Edward Mujica is taking over the closer role for the Boston Red Sox on a temporary basis, which will give usual closer Koji Uehara a little break after pitching a lot of innings over the last two seasons. Mujica closed for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013, so he knows the closer role well and how it differs from being a setup or middle relief pitcher. Check out the video above to...

Edward Mujica Coming On Strong After Early-Season Struggles (Video)

This is the Edward Mujica the Boston Red Sox thought they were getting when they signed him to a two-year contract this past offseason. The veteran reliever has struggled in his first season in Boston, but the right-hander is starting to find himself. That’s led to his best run of the entire season. Red Sox manager John Farrell showed his trust in Mujica when he turned to him late...

Boston Red Sox: To Trade or Keep?

Well, it’s that time of year. Trade Deadline Week. One of the most hectic, weird, and mostly unpleasant times of the sports year. The Red Sox, after making a nice run two weeks ago, have fallen down once again, sitting 9 games under .500. What was the sad possibility gnawing at the back of our heads is now the simple truth: the season is over, it’s all about April 2015 now. But...

WATCH: Ump laughs at Edward Mujica's pitiful pickoff attempt

Red Sox reliever Edward Mujica attempted to pick off a Tigers baserunner at second base on Sunday night but, unfortunately for Mujica, his throw was juuuuuust a bit outside. So far off target, in fact, that he almost drilled the second base umpire, who couldn’t control his laughter as a result. Pretty hilarious…but probably more so if you’re not a Red Sox fan.

What Bargain? Edward Mujica's struggles continue

  "That’s what I call a bargain!", I thought, when the Red Sox signed Edward Mujica for $9.5MM over 2 years back in December. Despite 37 saves and a 2.78 ERA in 2013 with the Cardinals, he finished 10th place in the dollars sweepstakes among free-agent relief pitchers. Most knowledgable…

Red Sox Ink Mujica To Two-Year, $9.5M Deal

The Red Sox added to an already strong bullpen corps yesterday by signing Edward Mujica to a two-year, $9.5 million contract. Mujica closed for the National League Champion Cardinals part of last year—but fell out favor with the Redbirds after fatiguing toward the end of the season.

Cardinals acquire John Axford for PTBNL

Well, so much for standing pat. The Cardinals made a move today to try to help their warn out bullpen, acquiring former Brewers closer John Axford for the now infamous player to be named later.

According to Jennifer Langosch, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak seemed to imply yesterday that the Cardinals were unlikely to make any blockbuster moves before the trade deadline.  In terms of the trade market and what the Cardinals might add, Mozeliak had this to say: "For me to sit here today and tell you specifically what we might try to add just doesn't make a lot of...
