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. The bright yellow cast is adorned by autographs by every player on the 2015 Red Sox squad. Now...

BOSTON — A lost season for the Boston Red Sox got even uglier on Monday as Koji Uehara’s season came to an end due to a broken wrist suffered in Sunday’s game against the Detroit Tigers. Uehara was hit by an Ian Kinsler line drive attempting to make the final out of Sunday’s 7-2 win. Although he was able to finish off the play, Uehara was clearly in pain. Initial X-rays came...

Koji Uehara Tweets Picture Of Wrist, Most Upset He Can’t Drink Beer (Photos)

As if we needed another reason to love Koji Uehara, the Boston Red Sox closer provided us with one for the ages Friday night. Uehara put a scare into everyone at the end of Friday’s 7-2 win over the Detroit Tigers, when his last pitch of the game was hit right back at him on a scorcher from Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler. Uehara was in obvious pain, but X-rays fortunately came...

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...

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'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,...
