Red Sox's John Farrell not sold on Koji Uehara's status for opener?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) 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.


Farrell: Red Sox RP Ogando 'sets himself apart' against righties


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated Tuesday that relief pitcher Alexi Ogando could be a weapon against tough right-handed hitters with the use of his slider and fastball, MLB.com reports.

"Ogando's breaking ball and his ability to throw down and away and attack really good right-handed hitters, he sets himself apart from the guys in our bullpen," Farrell said.

Ogando signed with the Red Sox this season on a one-year deal for $1.5 million, plus incentives, and he wasted no time impressing his new team.

"I've felt he has a chance to impact our team as much as anyone coming out of spring training, and that view hasn't changed," Farrell said Tuesday.

Ogando has surrendered two earned runs in four innings this spring but has racked up five strikeouts while not walking a batter. He's looking to bounce back from his last season with the Rangers, in which he went 2-3 with a 6.84 ERA in 25 innings.


Red Sox's Farrell on Ogando: He has a chance to make a huge impact


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Red Sox reliever Alexi Ogando had a second straight scoreless outing Thursday against the Pirates, lowering his ERA to 6.00. Ogando has allowed one hit over his last two innings after allowing two runs on two hits in his first spring outing March 5.

“It’s been very good,” Farrell said Ogando's progress, per WEEI.com. “If we get him to previous levels, or close to previous levels, in terms of arm strengths, production and get him through spring training healthy, it could be one of the keys to our camp. What he means to our bullpen? The ability to attack quality right-handed hitters that our division is going to present. He has a chance to make a huge impact on this team.”
