KOJI UEHARA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Koji Uehara Will Be Out For At Least One Month

While there is the typical confusion over a Red Sox medical diagnosis, the consensus seems to be that Koji Uehara will be sidelined at least a month with what is now being called a "torn" pectoral muscle. First, manager John Farrell said there was no timetable for Koji's return, then the pitcher tweeted that he'd be out a month. So, in a crucial period when Boston will be almost...

Red Sox place reliever Uehara on disabled list

BOSTON (AP) Koji Uehara, who took over the closer's role for Boston when Craig Kimbrel was injured, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Red Sox with a right pectoral strain. Right-hander Noe Ramirez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday to replace the right-handed Uehara on the 25-man roster. The 41-year-old Uehara is 2-3 with a 4.50 ERA and six saves...

Brad Ziegler named Red Sox closer with injuries

Red Sox Notes: Koji Uehara Tabbed As Primary Closer In Craig Kimbrel’s Absence

BOSTON — Koji Uehara is taking back his old job. For now, anyway. The Red Sox relief pitcher picked up his second save in as many nights Saturday, working a scoreless ninth inning to put the finishing touches on a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park. Uehara was forced into the closing role after it was revealed All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel will miss 3-6 weeks with a...

Kimbrel to miss 3-6 weeks, undergo surgery on torn left meniscus

The Boston Red Sox's bullpen gamble

By Shaun Ranft  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...

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...

Uehara removed from closer role but not shut down

Koji Uehara has been removed from the Boston Red Sox’s closer role. However, he is not being shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season. Uehara will pitch in lower-leverage situations as he works through his ongoing struggles, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell. The Red Sox’s hope is that Uehara will return to the closer’s role before the end of the season, but Edward...

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...
