    • The Red Sox and Tazawa agreed to a one-year, $3.375 million contract in January of 2016, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. For the third year in a row, the two sides came to an agreement, which coincide with Tazawa's amount of time holding down the role of setup man for the Red Sox. The 2015 season was a bumpy ride for the righty, though, as he compiled a 2-7 record, 4.14 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 56:13 K:BB in 58.2 innings.

    • Report: Red Sox RP Junichi Tazawa shut down for 2015
      By CBSSports.com Staff

      Red Sox reliever Junichi Tazawa has been shut down for the rest of 2015 due to workload concerns, the Boston Globe's Pete Abraham reports. Tazawa sits at 58.2 innings on the season, which is less than he has thrown in each of the two previous seasons, but his performance of late does suggest that he is wearing down. The 29-year-old righty proved pretty convincingly that he is not cut out to handle the ninth inning after Koji Uehara went down, so he will be locked into mid-to-late inning complimentary role in the bullpen next season.

    • Acting closer Junichi Tazawa was bound to earn a save if the Red Sox continued throwing him out there in save situations. And he finally did Wednesday against Cleveland. Tazawa was 0-for-5 in save situations until he mowed down the Indians in order in the ninth. He retired them on a foulout and two groundouts for his second 1-2-3 inning in his last eight appearances.
