Cubs' Koji Uehara: Picks up second save Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uehara stuck out two in a clean ninth inning Sunday against St. Louis to pick up his second save of the year.

Cubs closer Wade Davis picked up saves on Friday and Saturday, so manager Joe Maddon decided to give him a rest Sunday. Uerhara's usage thus far puts him on track to log six saves and 21 holds while approaching 70 strikeouts -- numbers that can be useful for those in NL-only formats.

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

Uehara (1-3) was tagged with loss Wednesday against the Padres. He allowed an earned run on a walk and hit over one inning of work.

On a day in which the Cubs scored just one run, the run given up by Uehara in the eighth inning turned out to be costly. The veteran still sports a solid 3.63 ERA and 1.10 WHIP, to go along with 20 strikeouts in 17.1 innings.

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.
