Red Sox | Koji Uehara showing he's human

Tue, 06 May 2014 14:58:29 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara has given up two runs and six hits while walking two in 4 2/3 innings for a 3.86 ERA since April 6, despite the fact that he's 3-for-3 in save chances during that stretch. He's also allowed at least one runner in six of his last seven outings, and manager John Farrell said it's "maybe a little uncharacteristic of his overall efficiency." Uehara was slow out of the gates last year, too, but this season he dealt with a shoulder scare. However, the team is saying his latest struggles aren't the sign of his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Uehara's recent struggles have mainly been because of his uncharacteristic lack of pinpoint accuracy with his pitches. His numbers haven't been terrible during this stretch, either, reminding his owners that we've come to expect greatness from him. Give him a pass this time around.
