Junichi Tazawa Shut Down For Remainder Of 2015

If you think the Red Sox bullpen stinks now, wait a minute. The team announced that eighth-inning set-up man Junichi Tazawa will be shut down for the rest of the season. The reason for the decommissioning is "fatigue" brought on by his 61 appearances in 2015. In the last several weeks, Tazawa has been uncharacteristically bad—so this is probably the right thing to do if they want an effective guy in 2016.
