Player Notes
Koji Uehara worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning to earn his 18th save as the Red Sox eked out a 4-3 victory versus the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Advice: Uehara got Danny Valencia and Dioner Navarro to fly out to the outfield and Kevin Pillar to fly out in the infield for a stress-free ninth inning. The veteran right-hander has converted 18 saves in 20 opportunities with a 2.89 ERA and a 30/6 K/BB ratio in 28 innings.

Koji Uehara earned his 17th save of the season after pitching a scoreless ninth inning against the Blue Jays, finalizing Monday's 3-1 victory.

Advice: Uehara needed only 11 pitches, getting Jose Reyes to foul out, Josh Donaldson to fly out, and Jose Bautista to pop up. He's 17-for-19 in save chances to date with a 3.00 ERA and a 30/6 K/BB ratio in 27 innings.

Koji Uehara slammed the door on the Rays for his 16th save as the Red Sox won 5-3 on Sunday.

Advice: Uehara got two quick outs on a strikeout of Kevin Kiermaier and an Asdrubal Cabrera ground out. However, Grady Sizemore kept hope alive with a double, then advanced to third base on a wild pitch. Uehara bounced back to get Evan Longoria on a fly out to right field to end the game. Despite a few leaky outings in June, Uehara has been reliable this season, getting the save in 16 of 18 opportunities with a 3.12 ERA and a 30/6 K/BB ratio in 26 innings.

Koji Uehara pitched a perfect 10th inning Friday against the Rays for his 15th save of the season.

Advice: Uehara struck out two batters in the frame and needed just 10 pitches to lock down the victory. The 40-year-old has had some rough outings this month, which is why his ERA sits at an uncharacteristic 3.24 for the year, but he still has an excellent 29/6 K/BB ratio in 25 innings. It would be interesting to see what kind of market there is for him if the Red Sox decide to sell off pieces before July 31.
