Koji Uehara gave the Red Sox a bit of a scare when he came down with some shoulder stiffness last Friday, but the early word on his status is promising.
Uehara made it through a throwing session yesterday with no issues and Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that an MRI today revealed no structural damage. The 39-year-old right-hander is scheduled to rejoin the team tomorrow in Chicago, though it’s unclear when he’ll be ready to return to game action. Still, it looks like he’ll avoid a stint on the disabled list at the very least.
Edward Mujica filled in for Uehara last Friday against the Orioles for his first save of the season. The Red Sox figure to be careful with Uehara’s workload, so he might get the opportunity to close out some more games in the coming days and weeks.
