10/30/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox re-signed RHP Koji Uehara to a two-year deal.
Insight: The contract is worth $18 million, and Uehara will be an option at closer for Boston in 2015.
 
9/29/2014 5:06:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have not decided whether they'll tender a qualifying offer to free agent closer Koji Uehara according to Brian MacPherson.
Insight: The problem is the one-year qualifying offer on this year's market is expected to be around $15.1 million. That is quite a hefty price for a 40-year-old closer that blew three saves after Aug. 21. We expect the Red Sox to try and bring Uehara back but will try and negotiate with him on the open market.
 
9/5/2014 4:24:00 PM
Description: Red Sox closer Koji Uehara will take a couple of days off after his blown save Thursday against the Yankees.
Insight: Uehara has allowed 10 earned runs in his last six appearances. Edward Mujica is expected to act as closer while Uehara rests.
 
Cold8/26/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: According to mlb.com, Red Sox manager John Farrell said he has no plans to shut down Koji Uehara despite his recent struggles.
Insight: Uehara has allowed seven runs on 10 hits in his last 3 1/3 innings and he blew two saves and lost two games in that span. Farrell said Uehara has not reported any symptoms of fatigue.
 
Cold8/25/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara blew his second straight save Monday at Toronto, but he picked up his sixth win of the year.
Insight: Uehara didn't exactly enter into the best situation, as Clay Buchholz had loaded the bases with one out in a 3-0 game. But those types of leads are usually safe with Uehara when he's on point. The 39-year-old has allowed seven runs on 10 hits in his last 3 1/3 innings.
 
Cold8/22/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara imploded Friday against the Mariners, allowing five runs after entering with a 3-0 lead.
Insight: Uehara gave up five hits and walked one while recording two outs. The right-hander has allowed seven runs on nine hits in 2 2/3 innings his last three games after going 13 straight innings without giving up a run.
 
6/22/2014 7:34:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara blew his first save of the season Sunday, allowing two solo homers to blow a 6-4 lead, but the Red Sox scored in the top of the 10th to get Uehara his third win of the year.
Insight: Uehara allowed seven hits and walked three during a streak of 21 straight scoreless innings, but he's given up four hits (3 HR) and three runs in his last three innings. However, he won two games in that stretch and still has a 1.30 ERA and a 0.72 WHIP this season.
 
4/17/2014 10:32:00 AM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara (shoulder) is expected to be available on Thursday after completing a bullpen session Wednesday.
Insight: Edward Mujica has been serving as Boston's closer while Uehara was sidelined, but blew the save opportunity on Wednesday night.
 
4/15/2014 6:26:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara (shoulder) is expected to be available on Thursday, according to Sean McAdam of csnne.com.
Insight: Uehara rejoined the team Tuesday in Chicago after missing Boston's four-game set against the Yankees due to shoulder stiffness. He long-tossed Tuesday and will throw a bullpen Wednesday. Edward Mujica will serve as Boston's closer until Uehara is ready.
 
4/14/2014 8:39:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara has no structural damage in his shoulder, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
Insight: Uehara will rejoin the team Tuesday in Chicago after missing Boston's four-game set against the Yankees due to shoulder stiffness. The Red Sox went to Edward Mujica for a save Friday and he converted it.
 
4/12/2014 9:12:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara is scheduled to long toss on Sunday. If he's unable to, the Red Sox will probably send him back to Boston to get his shoulder looked at. SOURCE: Sean McAdam, Comcast Sportsnet New England
Insight: Koji is battling a stiff shoulder, which is why Edward Mujica pitched the ninth inning last night against New York. The 39-year-old could be looking at a stint on the 15-day DL.
 
4/12/2014 11:54:00 AM
Description: Nothing has been officially announced but Red Sox closer Koji Uehara last pitched on Wednesday and Edward Mujica closed on Friday night.
Insight: Uehara (two saves, 0.00 ERA) is apparently dealing with shoulder stiffness. He has not been sent back to Boston for further exam, so hopefully its just a short-term issue.
 
4/11/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox went to Edward Mujica for the save in a 4-2 game Friday night instead of Koji Uehara.
Insight: Uehara (two saves, 0.00 ERA) last pitched on April 9 so he was rested. We'll see what manager John Farrell says in the post-game presser.
 
Hot10/20/2013 10:53:00 AM
Description: Red Sox closer Koji Uehara won the ALCS MVP after throwing six scoreless innings with nine strikeouts and zero walks over five appearances during the series.
Insight: Uehara was expected to be the team's seventh-inning man this season with Andrew Bailey throwing in the eighth and Joel Hanrahan closing. When Bailey and Hanrahan went down with injuries, Uehara stepped into the closer role and ended the season with 21 saves, a 1.09 ERA, a 0.57 WHIP, 101 strikeouts and just nine walks in 74 1/3 innings. In eight postseason appearances, he has a 1.00 ERA, a 0.56 WHIP, a 13/0 K/BB and five saves in nine innings.
 
9/18/2013 5:12:00 PM
Description: Koji Uehara's streak of consecutive batters retired ended Tuesday in a loss to the Orioles.
Insight: Prior to Danny Valencia's triple in the ninth inning, the Red Sox closer had retired 37 hitters in a row, four shy of Bobby Jenks' major league record for a relief pitcher. Even with the loss, Uehara's ERA is still barely over one (1.18). He's having a season for the ages and should be started in all formats.
 
Hot9/4/2013 9:27:00 AM
Description: Red Sox closer Koji Uehara continued his dominance Tuesday with a nine-pitch save against the Tigers.
Insight: Uehara (3-0, 1.16 ERA, 17 saves) has been unhittable in the second half. Since the break, he's held his opponents to an .078 average in 18 appearances. Uehara's scoreless streak is now at 25 innings. He's retired each of the last 21 hitters he's faced.
 
Hot9/1/2013 5:48:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara recorded his 21st consecutive scoreless outing Sunday in a win against Chicago.
Insight: That ties Jonathan Papelbon for the second-longest streak in team history. Uehara (3-0, 1.17 ERA, 16 saves) hasn't allowed an earned run since June 30th.
 
6/21/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: Red Sox manager John Farrell announced Friday that Koji Uehara will be the team's new closer, according to Evan Drellich of MassLive.com.
Insight: Andrew Bailey has blown three saves and allowed seven runs in his last five appearances, and Boston removed him from the closer role following Thursday's game. Bailey said he's looking at the change as a temporary one, but fantasy owners can go ahead and add Uehara, who has a 2.10 ERA, a 0.87 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 30 innings this season.
 
4/21/2013 10:43:00 PM
Description: Boston reliever Koji Uehara finally gave up his first run of the season Sunday in a 5-4 loss to Kansas City.
Insight: He blew the save by giving up a solo shot to Billy Butler with two outs in the eighth. Prior to Sunday, Uehara's longest outing of the season had lasted just 14 pitches. He needed 21 pitches to get through the eighth inning on Sunday.
 
12/6/2012 4:11:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have signed reliever Koji Uehara to a one-year contract, reportedly worth $4.25 million. SOURCE: Jon Morosi, Fox Sports
Insight: Uehara had a 1.75 ERA and 0.64 WHIP in 36 innings with Texas a year ago but he missed a large portion of the season with a lat injury. He'll be a solid option in holds leagues and leagues with innings limits.
