According to The Providence's Journal's Brain MacPherson, the Red Sox have not yet decided whether to make the roughly $15 million qualifying offer to free-agent closer Koji Uehara. The reliever—who was lights-out in 2013—came back to Earth some in late 2014. Boston may have a better chance of negotiating a new (more team-friendly) deal with the soon-to-be 40-year old rather than commit to the hefty qualifying offer. Stay tuned, this could be an early signal of where The Carmine Hose are headed in 2015.
