Red Sox's Koji Uehara on struggles in day games: 'Because I'm old'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Red Sox closer Koji Uehara has been much more effective during night games than day games in 2015. He has a 1.40 ERA in 21 appearances at night, as opposed to a 6.23 ERA in 10 outings during the day.

“Because I’m old,” Uehara said through a translator, per WEEI.com. “Older guys need to sleep in.

“What I’m figuring could be in the sunlight can see better and that’s why I’m getting hit a little bit more in day games. That’s the only reasoning I can think of. Also the fact that my body is not awakened as night games.”

Pitching coach Carl Willis doesn't have an issue with Uehara saying he struggles during the day.

“That’s where the communication comes in, and the trust factor,” Willis said. “It’s good to hear him say that because you don’t want that false positivity when you’re not 100 percent, or you are dragging that day. We need to know those things.

“It’s more difficult [when you’re older]. But I think in his case he does everything he can to combat that. He’s very routine oriented and understands what he needs to do. But there are times you can’t avoid it, either.”

Reds SP Sean Marshall (shoulder) plays catch Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Reds reliever Sean Marshall, who has not pitched in the majors in more than a year due to a shoulder injury, played catch Wednesday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

“He looked normal and not like a guy coming off shoulder surgery. Pretty remarkable,” manager Bryan Price said.

Marshall threw for 10 minutes from a distance of 60 feet.

"I don't know how many throws, probably 75 throws. It felt really good," Marshall said, per MLB.com. "From the first throw, the ball was smooth coming out of my hand. My shoulder felt really smooth. I didn't feel anything I was running into. I was very encouraged for day No. 1."

Marshall remains optimistic he will pitch in the majors this season.

"My endurance is great. My range of motion is good," Marshall said. "Those are a couple of things I was battling with coming out of the previous surgery. So far, everything is in a very positive direction, for sure.

"If I keep stepping in a positive direction, there's no doubt about it. I'd like to get back in the bullpen and be with my boys down there."


Reds RP Tony Cingrani ready to begin rehab assignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. He will now begin a rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Louisville.

"He's feeling good. He's about as strong as he's been with his shoulder," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "He's had a little bit of a reoccurring shoulder issue, so it's been really important to get him as strong as we possibly can get him, and he feels great. [We're] anticipating he'll go out and throw a couple of innings ... and come out feeling really good."

Cingrani will get stretched out on his rehab assignment, so he can be prepared to fill multiple roles for the Reds.

"With both Raisel (Iglesias) and Tony, we're always a setback away from needing somebody. And once I know both of those guys have a couple of outings, to me, they become available to our ballclub," Price said. "I'd prefer they get completely stretched out and fulfill the rehab, but if we can get a couple of outings under their belt, then if we had to have them, we could activate them. I'd rather see them finish their rehabs."


Diamondbacks' David Hernandez takes loss in relief on Tuesday

"For just so long, you grow accustomed to pitching and feeling fine, like nothing happened," Hernandez said, per MLB.com. "But I know it's going to take time. But up here there's no time, you've got to get the outs before obviously they score any runs." 


Mets RP Jenrry Mejia to assume setup role upon activation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia is ready to rejoin the team when his 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs ends next week, manager Terry Collins said Tuesday.

After two scoreless appearances in the Gulf Coast League (Rookie), Mejia fired one scoreless inning for Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday. He struck out two and has six strikeouts in three innings since he began to throw in the minors.

“He’s ready to go, ready to pitch here and he’s going to go out a couple of more times and then he’s going to come back,” Collins said, per the New York Post. “I think you’re going to see a little different team, when we start to get our guys back and our young kids have done a tremendous job of holding us in there while we’ve had all these injuries and in this case the suspension. But when [Mejia] gets back he’s going to help us.”

Collins said Mejia, who is expected to assume a setup role upon his return, has had his fastball range from 94-96 mph.

“When he was 20 years old he pitched pretty good at this level, in a similar role that he’s going to pitch in now,” Collins said. “Hopefully he can regain that and be a big asset for us in the bullpen.”
