KOJI UEHARA RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Koji And Fan (FenwayNation Photo)In an interview with The Japan Times, Red Sox closer Koji Uehara stated that he likes the moves his team has made this off-season.

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’s Future Closer: Who Could Fill Role After Koji Uehara?

Koji Uehara and the Boston Red Sox are going to part ways at some point in the near future. It might not be this offseason. It might not even be next offseason. But Uehara is a free agent who is turning 40 before Opening Day. The good times can’t last forever. The Red Sox need to start planning for Uehara’s inevitable departure. There’s obviously a chance Boston could sign...

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...

Some times the worst deals are the ones you dont make

Koji Uehara by Kelly O’Connor Hashtag regret. I have no idea what hashtag means. I do know that it is the ‘pound’ symbol, but beyond that and using it to tag things, I couldnt tell you any more. Any way, that’s not important to this article. regret, however, is. I think most people have probably heard the mantra “sometimes the best deals are the ones you don’t make.”...

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...

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,...
