Player Notes
Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday that the team has no plans to shut down Koji Uehara.

Advice: Farrell acknowledged that with 134 1/3 regular-season innings pitched since the beginning of 2013 and an additional 13 2/3 frames in last year's playoffs, Uehara could be tiring. However, the closer hasn't reported any fatigue, so the club plans to keep going with him even though he's allowed seven earned runs over his last 3 1/3 innings. "He's gone through a bit of a stretch where he hasn't been as efficient or effective as we're accustomed to seeing," Farrell said. "But that does not take away our belief or confidence in him."

While he didn't give up any runs of his own, Koji Uehara blew another save after giving up a two-run double Monday against the Blue Jays.

Advice: With his splitter not splitting, it really looks like Uehara is all used up at the moment. Maybe 5-7 days off would cure him, but given that he's 39 and he's dealt with a much heavier than expected workload these last two years, it's also possible he's finished as an effective reliever, at least for 2014. His owners should probably grab Edward Mujica.

Koji Uehara suffered a complete meltdown Friday, allowing five runs while recording two outs in a blown save against the Mariners.

Advice: Uehara came close to getting out of it, but with two outs and the bases loaded he proceeded to give up a two-run double, two-run single and finally an RBI single that signified the end of his night. Not only was it the first time Uehara has ever given up five runs in an outing, he'd never even allowed four runs in a single appearance before Friday. He's now allowed seven runs over his last 2 2/3 innings, so it's certainly rough times for the 39-year-old right now.
