Boston Red Sox RP Andrew Miller (foot) will undergo season-ending surgery on his foot.
Fantasy Tip: This is a blow to the BoSox's bullpen, but thankfully, Junichi Tazawa has performed well against lefties as well. Koji Uehara remains the team's closer, but Andrew Bailey is gaining steam and could be the primary setup man soon if he continues to pitch well.

The Boston Red Sox placed RP Andrew Miller (foot) on the 15-day disabled list with a left foot injury Monday, July 8, and recalled P Alfredo Aceves from Triple-A Pawtucket in a corresponding move. X-rays on Miller's foot were negative, but he's dealing with more soreness. Miller is 1-2 with a 2.64 ERA this year and left-handers are hitting only .155 against him. RPs Andrew Bailey and Junichi Tazawa will continue to set up RP Koji Uehara in the ninth.
Bailey is gaining manager John Farrell's trust again after 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief Sunday, July 7, after Miller got hurt. Tazawa has limited left-handers to a .247 average.

Updating a previous report, X-rays were negative for Boston Red Sox SP Andrew Miller (foot). However, he will return to Boston for more tests, and he is wearing a walking boot. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, July 7.

The Boston Red Sox are expected to place P Andrew Miller (foot) on the disabled list and recall P Alfredo Aceves from Triple-A Pawtucket, according to several major league sources. Miller suffered a left foot injury against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, July 6, but the severity is unknown. He was taken to a local hospital for X-rays because the team feared the foot was fractured.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell isn't ruling out using RP Koji Uehara for the third straight day Friday, June 28. If he's not available, the team will go with the best matchup in a save situation.
Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that Uehara is used given the team's reluctance to have him pitch on back-to-back days earlier this year. If he doesn't go, Junichi Tazawa or Andrew Miller would likely be used over Andrew Bailey.

Boston Red Sox RP Andrew Bailey is confident that he'll regain the closer's role after being demoted Thursday, June 20. "Hopefully, we have save opportunities every night," manager John Farrell said. "If he's not available, we have confidence it could be Junichi (Tazawa), it could be Andrew Miller and in time Andrew Bailey." The team's decision to use RP Koji Uehara as the primary closer is mainly due to his experience in the role before.
Farrell is leaving the door open for Bailey to reclaim the job, though. "I thought last night, despite the outcome, he was down in the zone better and used his breaking ball a little bit more, but it ends up in a two-run homer to walk if off for them," Farrell said. "He needs to regain some momentum and some confidence on his part, realize some positive results and carries that back into the ninth inning." Bailey has allowed four home runs and seven earned runs in his last five outings.
Fantasy Tip: Don't give up on Bailey. If Farrell is open to Bailey regaining the job, it could easily happen, although a timetable for that possibility is impossible to predict. He'll likely need Koji Uehara or Junichi Tazawa to falter, too.
