Red Sox closer Koji Uehara can't hold lead in 10th, blows first save
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) The Red Sox rallied to hand closer Koji Uehara a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the 10th inning Saturday but the right hander squandered it to blow the save against the Orioles.
"He probably doesn't have the finish to his fastball as we've seen, so he's gone to his split a few times," manager John Farrell said to the Boston Herald. "He gets deep in the count where it's a little predictable to Lough."
Adam Jones tripled and scored on a sacrifice fly before David Lough won it with a walk-off homer for Uehara's first blown save of the season.
"Splitter that doesn't move,” Uehara said. "It stayed over the middle of the plate. I'm not looking at velocity at this point or any point in my career so it's no problem."
Red Sox closer Koji Uehara finishes off 7-5 win for third save

|(4/24/15) Red Sox closer Koji Uehara finished off a 7-5 win Friday against the Orioles for his third save.
Uehara ran into a little trouble in the ninth inning, as he allowed runners to reach first and third base with one out. Both runners reached base via singles.
However, Uehara was able to retire the last two batters in the ninth before a run crossed the plate. He had two strikeouts.
Uehara has two saves since Tuesday.

|(4/21/15) Red Sox closer Koji Uehara worked a nearly perfect ninth inning in Boston's 1-0 win over the Rays Tuesday for his second save of the year.
Uehara allowed a leadoff single to Logan Forsythe, but then induced a double play ball from Evan Longoria before getting Desmond Jennings to ground out to end the game. Uehara kept his perfect 0.00 ERA through three innings of work with four strikeouts and no walks to his credit.

Koji Uehara returns to Red Sox with save
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Red Sox closer Koji Uehara returned to the team from the disabled list and wasted no time in making an impact. Uehara started the season sidelined by a hamstring injury.
In his first appearance of the season, Uehara pitched a perfect ninth inning, striking out two, for his first save of the year.
''Much like we've seen a lot from Koji,'' Farrell said. ''Three up and three down.''
|2014 summary: Koji Uehara followed up on his historic 2013 season (1.09 ERA, 0.57 WHIP) to reprise his role as the Red Sox's closer, and for three-fourths of the season, he nearly met the standard he set the year before. Through Aug. 15, Uehara made good on 26 of his 28 save chances while compiling a 1.27 ERA and 0.76 WHIP. Over the next three weeks, Uehara melted down, allowing 10 earned runs on 14 hits in just 4 2/3 innings, blowing all three of his save chances. He lost the closer's role to Edward Mujica and made just three appearances over the season's final three weeks.|
Playing time summary: Despite his late-season implosion, the Red Sox signed Uehara to a two-year, $18 million deal in late October. He will enter the 2015 season as the Red Sox's presumptive closer, though it remains to be seen if the team will use him less frequently this time in order to prevent late-season fatigue.
2015 outlook: After fading badly down the stretch, Uehara should come more cheaply than he did a year ago, but perhaps deservedly so, since he comes with much more risk. He's still a reasonable fallback option to pursue after the first 10 to 12 closers come off the board. If Uehara can rebound as a 40-year-old, he could provide elite-level production at the price of a No. 2 reliever.
