      Red Sox's Koji Uehara: Expect to serve in setup role

      Uehara (wrist) is now expected to open 2016 in a setup role, with the Red Sox acquiring Craig Kimbrel from the Padres on Friday. The Red Sox solidified the back end of the bullpen with the trade for Kimbrel, who will undoubtedly relegate Uehara to setup duties upon his arrival. While Uehara posted a 2.23 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 10.5 K/9 last season, he lost another mph on his fastball and will be 41 years old come Opening Day. Further, Uehara suffered a season-ending injury to his right wrist in August, though he's been throwing for more than a month and there has been no indication that he will miss the start of 2016.

      Red Sox RP Koji Uehara injured while recording save on Friday

      Red Sox closer Koji Uehara earned himself a painful two-out save on Friday, as he preserved a 7-2 win over the Tigers. The save was Uehara's 25th of the season. Uehara was summoned after Justin Masterson had loaded the bases with one out, putting the tying run on the on-deck circle. But Uehara did his job, retiring both men he faced to end the threat and close out the game. But the last play of the game was a comebacker off the bat of Ian Kinsler, which ricocheted off Uehara's arm. The play was made, and he walked off the mound with the trainer as his teammates celebrated on the mound. Uehara went for X-rays after the game which confirmed no break. He will likely not be available on Saturday, but he could be ready by Sunday, per The Boston Globe.
