Red Sox | Koji Uehara to be setup man
Tue, 07 May 2013 11:30:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell prefers to leave RP Koji Uehara in the eighth-inning setup role with both RPs Andrew Bailey (biceps) and Joel Hanrahan (forearm) injured. "The one thing I like with Koji is you're going to get those pinch-hit left-handers in the eighth inning, and he's so effective against lefties," Farrell said. "That's where you might get a little bit of that gamesmanship or the matchup capability in the eighth inning." Uehara doesn't typically like to throw on back-to-back days, either, in an effort to keep himself healthy. Farrell also cited that Tazawa has a better fastball than Uehara, which should make him more effective in the closer's role.
