Is Koji Uehara Is Wearing His Retirement On His Arm?

Red Sox closer Koji Uehara is out for the year. Back on August 7th, he was nailed by a line drive to his pitching arm—and was eventually diagnosed with a broken right wrist. But, maybe the 40-year old doesn't have to worry about his next contract—considering what's on his injured arm.

Koji Uehara Hints At Fatigue Issues After Save

(Jim Rogash/Getty Images)As'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,...
