Koji Out Saturday; Will Long-Toss On Sunday

Red Sox Uber-Closer Koji Uehara will not pitch for the second straight day on Saturday due to "shoulder stiffness". According to's Seas McAdam, Uehara will engage in a little "long-toss" on Sunday and be re-evaluated. There is a chance that he could return to Boston on Monday for further examination. As yet, no roster moves have been made. Edward Mujica (who had a 1-2-3 ninth-inning save on Friday night) will temporarily move into the closer's role.
