Red Sox | Koji Uehara out until September?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:47:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara (pectoral) received a platelet rich plasma injection Friday, July 22, but he does not have a firm return timeline currently. ESPNBoston.com's Scott Lauber speculates Uehara will be out until Thursday, September 1.

Fantasy Tip: Uehara is a potential stash candidate if you have the luxury of additional bench spots or DL slots. However, given his potential return timeline, he likely won't be in the mix for the ninth-inning gig when healthy. There probably isn't a lot of fantasy value ahead for the 41-year-old reliever.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara lands on DL

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 11:22:01 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara (pectoral) was put on the disabled list with a right pectoral strain Wednesday, July 20, and RP Noe Ramirez was recalled from Class AAA Pawtucket in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: So with Craig Kimbrel (knee) also on the DL, Brad Ziegler is now in line for save chances yet again after being traded over from Arizona earlier this month. Ziegler isn't your prototypical strikeout closer, but he's done a fine job in recent years and should be picked up immediately if his previous owner cut him. Junichi Tazawa is expected back off the DL Friday and could vulture a few save chances if Ziegler needs to be rested.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara departs with pec injury

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 21:50:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara (pectoral) threw just seven pitches against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday, July 19, before feeling something in his right pectoral muscle and being removed from the game. He's set to be evaluated on Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: With Craig Kimbrel (knee) on the shelf, an injury to Uehara is the last thing the BoSox need. Hopefully the injury won't be too severe, but expect Brad Ziegler to be the top option to close games if Uehara is forced to miss time. That gives Ziegler some short-term appeal for anyone foraging for saves.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara the primary closer

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 19:02:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara will be the closer while RP Craig Kimbrel (knee) is sidelined, and RP Brad Ziegler will close on days when Uehara is not available, manager John Farrell said Saturday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Both Uehara and Ziegler are still worth adding if you need saves, but Uehara is obviously the preferred option.

Red Sox | Brad Ziegler, Koji Uehara to close

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 11:04:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox RPs Brad Ziegler and Koji Uehara will both receive opportunities to close games while RP Craig Kimbrel (knee) is on the disabled list, according to manager John Farrell. However, Ziegler is not expected to join the club in time for the game against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ziegler went 2-3 with a 2.82 ERA and 18 saves in 36 appearances for Arizona, with 15 walks and 27 strikeouts over 38 1/3 innings, while Uehara is 2-3 with a 4.96 ERA and three saves through 35 games, with nine walks and 46 strikeouts over 32 2/3 innings. Although Ziegler's strikeout totals are low for a closer and Uehara has posted a 7.00 ERA in 10 games over the past four weeks, both relievers should be rostered in AL-only fantasy leagues and by owners in mixed formats who are desperate for saves.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara notches save

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 21:11:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara picked up his third save of the season, allowing one run on one hits while striking out one against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday July 8.

Fantasy Tip: With Craig Kimbrel dealing with a knee injury and likely to be sidelined at least through the All-Star break, Uehara is a must-add option. At worst, he is a short-term candidate for a few saves.
