Cubs' Koji Uehara: Grabs first save of season Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uehara recorded his first save of the season in Thursday's win over the Reds. He pitched a scoreless inning with no hits allowed and two strikeouts.

Regular closer Wade Davis had worked Tuesday and Wednesday, so manager Joe Maddon turned to Uehara to quiet a potential Cincinnati rally in the ninth inning. The veteran allowed an inherited runner to score on a sac fly, but he then struck out the next two hitters to end the game. Uehara likely won't pick up too many more saves this year, but he should be a decent source of holds with strong ratios.

Cubs' Koji Uehara: Takes loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uehara (0-2) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Red Sox. He gave up three hits and three runs (two earned) without recording an out.

The veteran reliever had been good lately, but his former team got to him in this one. Uehara has a 3.72 ERA, though all of the damage has been done in two bad outings. He's held the opposition off the board in his other 10 appearances.

Cubs' Koji Uehara: Registers hold Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uehara recorded his second hold of the season in Tuesday's win over the Pirates. He pitched a scoreless inning, allowing one hit and striking out one.

Uehara came on for Kyle Hendricks after he pitched six scoreless innings, and the veteran reliever kept the Pirates at bay. Other than a rough outing on April 16, when he allowed two earned runs without recording an out, Uehara has not been scored upon, and he carries a nifty 2.08 ERA.

Cubs' Koji Uehara: Struggles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uehara (0-1) was tagged with a blown save and the loss in Sunday's game against the Pirates. He didn't record an out, and gave up three runs (two earned) on two hits and two walks.

Uehara hadn't allowed any runs prior to Sunday, but he just didn't have it in this one. The veteran started the eighth inning by walking the first batter he faced then giving up a double, and he gave way to Hector Rondon with the bases loaded. Consider this a hiccup, as Uehara should continue to serve in a high-leverage role for the Cubs.

Cubs' Koji Uehara: Wants to pitch two more years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uehara said he wants to pitch two more years at the MLB level, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Uehara, who will turn 42 in April, is entering his ninth MLB season. He said his goal is to get to 10 years in the majors, which would match the time he spent pitching professionally in Japan before he came to the U.S. No longer a closer, Uehara is still a solid reliever, as evidenced by his 0.96 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 47 innings last season.
