KOJI UEHARA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Koji Uehara Deserved Better From Red Sox In Stunning Loss To Rangers (Video)

The Boston Red Sox lost a stunner, 4-3, to the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Closer Koji Uehara will take both the blown save and the loss in the books, but to say Sunday’s disaster wasn’t his fault is an understatement. Ever the team player, though, Uehara shouldered the blame for allowing the Rangers to score the game-tying and game-winning runs with...

Koji Uehara’s Fastball Use, Command Is Major Key To Closer’s Success

It wasn’t yet time to go into full panic mode about Koji Uehara, but things certainly appeared to be heading in that direction.

Koji Uehara Returns To Red Sox, Says Hamstring ‘No Problem At All’

This embed is invalid" /> BOSTON — Koji Uehara didn’t circle the Red Sox’s home opener on his calendar. It just worked out this way.

The Boston Red Sox's bullpen gamble

The Boston Red Sox have made several moves during our most recent edition of MLB’s offseason. Adding infielders Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval was big, but they’ve also beefed up their starting rotation with the acquisitions of Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, and Justin Masterson. Yet, one of their earliest moves might just end up proving to be the strangest: re-signing Koji...

Boston Red Sox: Four burning questions for the offseason

2014 was not kind to the Boston Red Sox. They floated at under .500 for most of the season and ended up 25 games out of first place in a surprisingly mediocre American League East that saw just two teams — the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees — finish with more than 83 wins. The good news is that with around $50 million in payroll available to spend this winter, Boston...

Koji Uehara May Be On The Tiger Radar Screen

Headed To Motown?There's been a lot of back-and-forth lately about the wisdom of trading Red Sox closer Koji Uehara. The proponents cite Koji's age (39), the fact that Boston is pretty much out of post-season contention, and the likelihood that Uehara would bring a boatload of decent players/prospects in return. People who oppose a trade argue that some elite closers have pitched...

Boston Red Sox trade rumors: Koji Uehara edition

Depending on your outlook, I’m either about to make the wisest or most mind-numbingly stupid statement you’ve heard all day: the Boston Red Sox need to trade Koji Uehara right now. After suffering a three-game sweep to the hands of the lowly Chicago Cubs, Boston has dropped their record down to 38-47, nine games under .500, and 8.5 games behind the first-place Toronto Blue Jays...

Koji Uehara Hints At Fatigue Issues After Save

(Jim Rogash/Getty Images)As MassLive.com's Jason Mastrodonato points out, Koji Uehara might just be too much of a perfectionist. Despite posting a 1.23 ERA so far this year, he's unhappy with a few of his recent outings. And, to be truthful, he has seemed a little more hittable this year than last—of course, last year was other-worldly. After last night's three-strikeout save,...

Player Profile #123: Koji Uehara | RP | BOS

Koji Uehara will never have to buy a drink in the city of Boston for the rest of his life, and the video below of his World Series clinching strikeout of Matt Carpenter shows why. Uehara was absolutely filthy in the postseason, and he may have been the biggest reason why the Red Sox won the whole thing. Uehara looked as comfortable as can be in the closer role — if you didn...
