— Player Notes
Advice: Uehara strained his left hamstring early last week while doing some conditioning work, but Red Sox manager John Farrell called Thursday a "sizable step" for him. The next step calls for him to throw a bullpen session on Saturday. He remains a question mark for the start of the season. Edward Mujica would fill in at closer if he needs to miss some time.

Advice: Uehara also threw long toss in the session. The reliever appeared to be fine, Boston Globe beat writer Pete Abraham said. Uehara should be back on the mound in a few days and likely won't be a question for Opening Day.

Advice: Uehara suffered the injury Tuesday morning and the Red Sox aren't going to take any chances with him. He's not in jeopardy for missing the start of the season at this time, but he can't afford any setbacks.Rotoworld
