Edward Mujica to start season as Red Sox closer
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Edward Mujica will start the season in the closer role, manager John Farrell confirmed on Sunday. 

With Koji Uehara unlikely to be ready to start the year, Farrell said Mujica would get first shot at closing.

"There’s been times where he’s thrown a ball down and away to right-handers with good stuff," Farrell said, per WEEI. "Right now, he would be the guy that we turn to in closing situations. I will also say that we would look to matchup in the ninth inning as well. We’ll look to exploit the best matchup, and that could be any one of three or four guys down there to finish a game."

Red Sox's John Farrell not sold on Koji Uehara's status for opener?
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Red Sox manager John Farrell appears to be less sold closer Koji Uehara's status for Opening Day then he did a week ago when his closer suffered a left hamstring strain, according to MLB.com.

"I think with each passing day he's not in a game, there's growing concern, concern in the sense, 'Will he be ready for April 6?' And we're just working through that," said Farrell.

Uehara could throw a bullpen session at some point this week, but it appears as if the Red Sox are taking a cautious approach with their right-handed reliever. Edward Mujica and Alexi Ogando are candidates to fill in for Uehara in the ninth while he remains sidelined.

Edward Mujica: 'I'm going to be ready for' closer role if needed
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With Opening Day up in the air for Koji Uehara due to a strained left hamstring, Red Sox reliever Edward Mujica told reporters he's ready to assume the closer role while Uehara is down, according to the Boston Herald.

"For me, confidence is an important thing," Mujica said. "If they gave me that confidence and told me, 'Mujica, you're going to be in the ninth tonight,' I'm going to be ready for it."

Manager John Farrell indicated that either Mujica or Alexi Ogando stepping up for Uehara, if needed, per WEEI.

"It depends on matchups, history, who has pitched recently," Farrell said. "There could be a number of things that come into play. I can't say just always ride the hot hand. Those guys are going to find themselves in the highest leverage and that could be in the seventh inning as well, depending where we are in the lineup."

Mujica converted 37 saves for the Cardinals in 2013 before joining Boston in 2014. He went 2-4 with a 3.90 ERA and eight saves in his first season with Boston in 2014.

Red Sox's Mujica reveals neck injury played part in 2014 struggles
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox reliever Edward Mujica got off to a rocky start in 2014, posting a 6.41 ERA through the first two months of the season. He eventually settled down, posting a 2.68 ERA and seven saves over the final four months.

On Friday, Mujica revealed a neck injury played a part in his early season struggles. Mujica was diagnosed with his C1 vertebrae being out of place when he signed with the Red Sox and added the issue didn't clear up until midway through the 2014 season.

“My neck was bothering me when I got here, I got treatment and in spring training I felt good because of the weather,” Mujica said, per WEEI.com. “But then I felt sore in the neck because of the cold weather. I was also adjusting to the American League, all the teams have pretty good hitters 1-9. I just kept working every single day, watching videos, got that [physical] adjustment and got going in the second half.

“The C1 was a little moved out of place, but they put it in the right place in spring training to get through the season. With treatment every single day it helped me a lot after the first two months.”
