Craig Breslow, Edward Mujica getting plenty of work in Red Sox pen


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Red Sox starting pitchers have a 6.24 ERA this season, worst in the Major Leagues. As a result, the bullpen has had to pitch 49 and two thirds inning this year, second-highest total in baseball. 

Craig Breslow has pitched nine and two thirds scoreless innings. Edward Mujica (2.70 ERA in six and two third innings) and Robbie Ross (1.42 in six and a third) have also performed well under a heavy early-season workload. 

A 19-inning game against the Yankees helped increase the innings total for the bullpen. 

"You monitor the workload of every individual guy," manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com. "Our goal is to continue to try to stretch our starters out as best as possible. To keep a bullpen that's successful, healthy and strong requires an equally strong rotation."

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.

"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.

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.
