Player Notes
Koji Uehara (hamstring) made 60 throws off flat ground Thursday.

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.

Koji Uehara (hamstring) will throw on flat ground Thursday and is lined up for a bullpen session this weekend.

Advice: The workouts should give the Red Sox a better idea about his status for the opening of the regular season. Uehara strained his left hamstring early last week while doing some conditioning work. If he's not ready come April 6, Edward Mujica would presumably fill in at closer for Boston.

Ian Browne of MLB.com writes that Red Sox manager John Farrell "seems less sold" on Koji Uehara (hamstring) than he did a week ago.

Advice: Uehara strained his left hamstring a week ago and has resumed throwing and agility drills in recent days, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to return to game action. Be sure to follow this situation closely in the coming days. Edward Mujica would likely fill in at closer if Uehara needs extra time to get ready.

Koji Uehara (hamstring) played catch with good intensity Monday morning in Red Sox camp.

Advice: And he went through a range of agility drills on Sunday without issue. Uehara should be cleared to resume pitching in Grapefruit League games by the end of this week and he is expected to be fully recovered from his mid-March hamstring strain by Opening Day.

Koji Uehara (hamstring) went through some agility testing Sunday.

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.

Koji Uehara (hamstring) could long-toss on Friday.

Advice: Uehara strained his left hamstring on Tuesday. While it's good that he might be able to long-toss on Friday, the Red Sox won't let him throw from a mound again until he doesn't feel anything in his hamstring. Uehara is hopefuly of being ready for Opening Day.

Sat, Mar 21 Rotoworld
Koji Uehara (hamstring) expects to be ready for Opening Day, but conceded Wednesday that it could be a "close call."

Advice: Uehara strained his left hamstring Tuesday and Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday morning that he won't get back on the mound until "he can tolerate the stress" with his hamstring. He likely won't need many games to be ready for the season, but the situation is worth watching.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Koji Uehara will play catch, but won't get back on the mound until "he can tolerate the stress" in his strained left hamstring.

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.

Koji Uehara suffered a strained left hamstring on Tuesday morning in Red Sox camp.

Advice: It's going to cost him some Grapefruit League appearances, but the veteran closer should be fine by Boston's regular-season opener. Uehara has allowed seven hits and two earned runs in three innings this spring. He strained his hammy while running.
