Koji Uehara plans to pitch for Red Sox this weekend
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Red Sox ousted closer Koji Uehara, who has not pitched since blowing a save Thursday, is planning on returning to action this weekend in Kansas City.

Uehara has not been given his job back - that belongs for now to Edward Mujica. He is slated to pitch only in lower leverage situations. But he expects to reassume the closer role before the season is over. John Farrell was encouraged by his extended bullpen session Tuesday.

"Similar aggressiveness to in-game," he told MLB.com. "There was finish to his split."

Uehara has not registered a save since Aug. 12.

Koji Uehara to throw bullpen Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Koji Uehara will throw a bullpen Tuesday, after which the team will determine a plan of action regarding a potential return, ESPNBoston.com reports.

"He went through about a three-day no-throw. He’ll resume long toss and throw a bullpen today,” manager John Farrell said Tuesday. "Once he gets done with a bullpen today, whether there’s a need for an additional bullpen and then lower-leverage situation, that’s the progressive steps."

Uehara blew three of his last four save opportunities before being shut down for a few days. Edward Mujica has assumed the closer role in his absence.

Edward Mujica in, Koji Uehara out as Red Sox closer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Right-hander Edward Mujica has been named the new Red Sox closer in place of struggling Koji Uehara, who has been shut down for a short time.

Mujica has three saves as an occasional replacement for Uehara. He has given up just two earned runs since July 24, but both were allowed in five appearances over the last two weeks.

John Farrell said Uehara will return to the mound after "a couple of days" down, per the Providence Journal.

Koji Uehara in danger of being shut down for rest of season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters that the team is considering shutting closer Koji Uehara for the remainder of the season, according to ESPN Boston on Thursday.

Uehara suffered a blown save and took the loss after allowing home runs to Mark Teixeira and Chase Headley in the ninth inning. He allowed two runs on two hits over just one-third of an inning. He has blown a save in three of his last four appearances, and has allowed 10 runs over his last six appearances. Uehara has blown five of 31 save chances this season, with a 2.64 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP over 61 1/3 innings of relief.

Red Sox plan to reduce outings for two RPs, including closer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday closer Koji Uehara and reliever Junichi Tazawa will not be shut down in September, but he plans to limit their appearances over the final weeks of the season, per The Boston Globe. Edward Mujica would close on the days Uehara is not available.

Tazawa has appeared in a team-high 63 games out of the bullpen. Uehera is third among Boston relievers with 59 appearances and is 14 1/3 innings away from tying his career high in the majors, which he set last season.
