Koji Uehara Watch - Shoulder Stiffness

The Boston Red Sox will be without closer Koji Uehara for the second straight day as he deals with a shoulder issue.  If he ends up on the disabled list, Edward Mujica would take over as the Sox closer.  Mujica has 42 career saves, 37 of them coming with the St. Louis Cardinals last season.Tweets about "koji uehara"

The Red Sox scored four runs in the sixth inning Friday, though, and Boston came away from the...

Sox Wake Up And Face The Mujica; Lose, 6-2

(Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)In the first three plus games of 2014, the Red Sox bullpen was superb—and then in walked Edward Mujica. The former Cardinals closer (who lost his job last year before Boston faced St. Louis in the World Series) was a complete disaster in a 6-2 Home Opener loss.
