The Boston Red Sox placed RP Koji Uehara, 1B Mike Napoli, 1B/OF Daniel Nava and 3B Will Middlebrooks on revocable trade waivers.
Fantasy Tip: There's a chance one of them will be traded, so NL-only players might have another commodity to buy soon. If Uehara is dealt, expect Junichi Tazawa to take over save chances for Boston. Grab him if you can for this possibility.

The Washington Nationals had a scout in attendance at the Boston Red Sox's games this weekend, according to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal. The scout was on his usual coverage, but the Nats also had their top evaluators in Boston the previous weekend, and SP Jon Lester pitched in both series. It's unlikely Washington is looking at RPs Andrew Miller or Koji Uehara.

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara has given up two runs and six hits while walking two in 4 2/3 innings for a 3.86 ERA since April 6, despite the fact that he's 3-for-3 in save chances during that stretch. He's also allowed at least one runner in six of his last seven outings, and manager John Farrell said it's "maybe a little uncharacteristic of his overall efficiency." Uehara was slow out of the gates last year, too, but this season he dealt with a shoulder scare. However, the team is saying his latest struggles aren't the sign of his injury.
Fantasy Tip: Uehara's recent struggles have mainly been because of his uncharacteristic lack of pinpoint accuracy with his pitches. His numbers haven't been terrible during this stretch, either, reminding his owners that we've come to expect greatness from him. Give him a pass this time around.
