Red Sox Podcast: Koji Uehara’s Injury Troublesome With Opening Day Approaching

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.
