Athletics | Edward Mujica nails down save

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 16:40:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Edward Mujica recorded the save Saturday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Mujica should be scooped up in AL-only formats at least, and he's worth grabbing if you're save speculating in mixed leagues.

Athletics | Edward Mujica to close

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:08:44 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Edward Mujica will takeover as the closer beginning Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Mujica has a 4.13 ERA through 28 1/3 innings on the season. Mujica doesn't have a save yet this season, but owners should add him now that he'll get regular opportunities.

Athletics | OAK closer situation in flux

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:41:40 -0700

The Oakland Athletics have not yet determined their closer situation following the trade of RP Tyler Clippard. Free-agents-to-be RPs Edward Mujica and Eric O'Flaherty could also be dealt.

Fantasy Tip: The Athletics bullpen could be a mess down the stretch, but whomever emerges as the closer could be a decent addition in AL-only fantasy play.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara likely to start on DL

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 08:59:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara (hamstring) felt more pain in his left hamstring after throwing 30 pitches in a bullpen session Monday, March 30, and he's likely to start the season on the 15-day disabled list, according to manager John Farrell. Farrell said he's unsure if the team will keep seven or eight men in the bullpen, and he's unsure if RP Edward Mujica will assume the closing role to open up the year.

Fantasy Tip: Uehara, who turns 40 this Friday, has dealt with hamstring problems in the past, too. Age and injury concerns already made Uehara a shaky saves contributor this spring. Mujica is the favorite to see most of the save chances in Uehara's absence. Target him first in your fantasy leagues if he's still on the waiver wire. Junichi Tazawa isn't a bad consolation prize, and his skills are more intriguing.

Red Sox | Edward Mujica could close

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 07:22:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Edward Mujica could begin the season as the team's closer, with RP Koji Uehara (hamstring) considered unlikely for opening day. Manager John Farrell also said using matchups could also be an option for the team in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Mujica has 49 career saves, with a career-high 37 in 2013 while with the St. Louis Cardinals. If Mujica is handed the Red Sox's closer job to begin the season he'll be an excellent player to target in the late rounds of fantasy drafts. Mujica is worth a flier with a near 40-year-old Uehara facing several injury concerns, but Junichi Tazawa will figure in as well.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara to miss a few days

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 14:27:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara (hamstring) will miss at least a few days after straining his left hamstring Tuesday, March 17, according to manager John Farrell. Farrell said the team still expects Uehara to be ready for Opening Day, but this injury could be a problem. Uehara missed 28 games in March 2010 and was said the have a "chronic hamstring problem." Next in line to close would be RP Edward Mujica.

Fantasy Tip: Uehara is about to be 40 years old when the 2015 season starts, and injuries have been a part of his past. When healthy, he's proven to be a more than effective fantasy closer, but the injury risk has become part of his price now as a midrange closing option. Junichi Tazawa could also be mixed in in the ninth if Uehara misses any time during the regular season. Neither Mujica nor Tazawa should be drafted in standard 12-team mixed leagues, though.

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:31:05 -0700

Red Sox | Edward Mujica being hit hard

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 08:43:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Edward Mujica gave up a walkoff home run in the 12th inning to the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, June 4, and his ERA now sits at 7.28 on the season. He's given up 17 earned runs in 21 innings to go along with 28 hits and seven walks, and opponents are hitting .485 against his fastball. Mujica has also been throwing fewer splitters this year.

Fantasy Tip: Mujica came into the season as a legitimate option to share eighth-inning duties with Junichi Tazawa, but now he's essentially become a mop-up guy tasked with eating innings. There's no reason to hold him in fantasy leagues.
