Uehara Was Bothered By Back Pain In 2014

Koji Uehara's horrific run last August and September was apparently not due to fatigue—as had been previously thought. It has now been revealed that Boston's closer was experiencing back pain during that period that forced an alteration in his pitching mechanics. Said Koji, "I didn’t talk about it at that time. I think I’m over it. I’m not going to go into specifics, but...

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.

Koji Uehara’s New Contract A Big Win For Red Sox Despite Any Concerns

The Boston Red Sox are counting on Koji Uehara to age well. The Red Sox on Thursday re-signed Uehara to a two-year contract reportedly worth $18 million. Uehara endured a late-season rough patch and will turn 40 before Opening Day, but Boston made a sensible decision in inking the veteran closer to a two-year pact, as the potential reward far outweighs the risk. Plain and simple...

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...

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,...
