Red Sox won't have one primary setup reliever
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox manager John Farrell said he won't designate one reliever to be the primary setup man for closer Koji Uehara. Farrell said Junichi Tazawa and Edward Mujica with both be used in the setup role.

"I think they're going to have similar roles. When you have multiple guys with similar talents, we can keep guys a little bit more fresh early on where you can rotate some guys through," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "We know with what both guys are coming off of, high number of appearances last year. We'd like to think we can alternate game to game rather than going back to back earlier in the year. That way we can keep guys more fresh, the deeper we go into the season."

Red Sox, Junichi Tazawa avoid arbitration
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox and pitcher Junichi Tazawa have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $1.275 million.

Tazawa is arbitration eligible for the first time this season. He went 5-4 with a 3.16 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 72:12 K:BB ratio in 68 1/3 innings last season.

Junichi Tazawa delivers key bases-loaded out in Game 6 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Junichi Tazawa recorded just one out in Game 6 of the World Series Wednesday, but it was a big one, stranding three runners on base and ending a potential rally as the Red Sox beat the Cardinals 6-1 in a championship-clinching victory.

Called upon with two outs and the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Tazawa induced a grounder to the first baseman, maintaining his team's five-run lead with just six outs remaining. It was the biggest out of the night for the Red Sox, who got five scoreless appearances out of Tazawa during the World Series, four of which came with a single out.

Blue Jays seem to have Junichi Tazawa's number
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox reliever Junichi Tazawa allowed his eighth home run Tuesday at Toronto. Surprisingly, five of the eight home runs allowed have come against the Blue Jays.

"I don’t think it’s their approach," Tazawa said, per the Boston Herald. "I just think I have to be more aggressive and do what I do best, and I think it’ll take care of itself."

Koji Uehara worth adding over Junichi Tazawa
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though Junichi Tazawa was the Red Sox's choice to fill in at closer when Andrew Bailey was on the DL earlier this season, the latest reports suggest Koji Uehara is now. Hey, that works for Fantasy owners. Uehara has been the more effective of the two this season, boasting a 2.10 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 12.6 strikeouts per nine innings in 32 appearances, and has experience closing from his days with the Orioles.

Of course, just because you know to prioritize him over Tazawa (who could certainly still factor if Uehara falters) doesn't mean you should prioritize him over everyone. I don't think the move is meant to be permanent. Sounds to me like the Red Sox are taking the give-him-a-break-to-get-him-right approach with Bailey -- manager John Farrell referred to it as "backing him out of [the role]" -- which is why I'm not as excited to add Uehara as, say, Joaquin Benoit.

But interim roles do sometimes become permanent, so if I need saves, you can bet I'm putting in a claim for Uehara. I rank him 36th at reliever in Rotisserie leagues.
