Fantasy Tip: The Phils' closer spot is wide open after the team dealt Ken Giles. Either of these right-handers could nail down the spot, if healthy, and serve as a nice third reliever in fantasy.

|Athletics | Edward Mujica nails down save|

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
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.

|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.

Boston Red Sox RP Burke Badenhop could have some trade appeal for a team seeking relief help, and the Red Sox are also open to trading RPs Felix Doubront, Craig Breslow and Edward Mujica and 1B Mike Carp.
