Edward Mujica steps in for Koji Uehara, collects save vs. Yankees


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) With Koji Uehara dealing with a stiff shoulder, Red Sox reliever Edward Mujica stepped in his place and collected his first save of the season Friday night against the Yankees.

Mujica made quick work of the Yankees, needing only 13 pitches -- along with a strikeout -- to retire the side in order, clinching a 4-2 win. He has allowed four runs over his first 3 1/3 innings pitched this season.

Edward Mujica dealing with decreased velocity


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Red Sox reliever Edward Mujica is dealing with decreased velocity to start the season, according to WEEI.

In his first two appearances of the season, Mujica has averaged just 90.10 mph with his fastball. At this time last season, he was hitting 92.89 mph consistently. Mujica struggled mightily in his last appearance, surrendering four runs against the Brewers Friday. Despite the issues, he's still expected to serve as the backup closer when Koji Uehara is unable to go.


Edward Mujica drilled in first loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Red Sox reliever Edward Mujica's second appearance of the season didn't go so well, as he was hit hard in a 6-2 loss to the Brewers.

Mujica took the loss after entering a 2-2 game and allowing four runs without finishing an inning. He recorded two outs while allowing four earned runs on four hits before being pulled.

Mujica recorded just one last a year ago, so it didn't even take a full week for him to match that total. He has allowed four runs in 1 2/3 innings through two appearances. 


Red Sox won't have one primary setup reliever


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) Red Sox manager John Farrell said he won't designate one reliever to be the primary setup man for closer Koji Uehara. Farrell said Junichi Tazawa and Edward Mujica with both be used in the setup role.

"I think they're going to have similar roles. When you have multiple guys with similar talents, we can keep guys a little bit more fresh early on where you can rotate some guys through," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "We know with what both guys are coming off of, high number of appearances last year. We'd like to think we can alternate game to game rather than going back to back earlier in the year. That way we can keep guys more fresh, the deeper we go into the season."

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/5/2013) Yahoo! Sports reports that relief pitcher Edward Mujica has agreed to a two-year, $9.5 million deal with the Red Sox.

He had a 2.78 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 6.4 strikeouts per nine innings on the season but an 11.05 ERA, 2.73 WHIP and 3.7 strikeouts per nine innings over 10 appearances in September. He'll likely set up for Koji Uehara in Boston.

Edward Mujica makes postseason roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mujica isn't likely to pitch in high-leverage situations after struggling at the end of a season in which he posted a 2.78 ERA and 46:5 K:BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings. Trevor Rosenthal, who recorded saves on three straight days in a late-September series against the Nationals, is likely to serve as the team's closer throughout the postseason.
