Red Sox manager John Farrell announced today that Edward Mujica and Andrew Miller would be the next choices in line if Koji Uehara were—for whatever reason—unable to close games.

Koji was actually fourth in line for the job at the start of last year, with fellow-countryman Junichi Tazawa slotted in as the third option.
