Player Notes
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Koji Uehara is "in great demand," but the Red Sox "would like to hold on to him."

Advice: The Red Sox are still seven games out in the Wild Card race and seem likely to be sellers at the trade deadline, but they apparently don't want to give up their closer. Uehara will be a free agent after the season and will turn 40 around Opening Day next year, but perhaps Boston will consider extending him or making him a qualifying offer this winter. He's been one of the best relievers in the game again in 2014, posting a 1.58 ERA and 59/6 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings.

Koji Uehara racked up his 19th save of the season on Friday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a one-run lead against the Royals.

Advice: The 39-year-old right-hander is in the midst of another unbelievable season, registering a 1.61 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 58/6 K/BB ratio over his 44 2/3 innings, while converting 19 of his 21 save chances. As long as he remains healthy and on the field, he should continue to post elite numbers across the board.
