No Big Surprsie: Koji Uehara Headed To The 15-Day DL

As we suspected when witnessing the injury live last night, Koji Uehara is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a right pectoral strain. As we stated earlier, this absence could be long and nasty—especially when happening to an over-worked 40-year old. In the short term, it's likely that Brad Ziegler will take over closing duties. Also, the imminent return of both Junichi Tazawa and Joe Kelly will help things until both Uehara and Craig Kimbrel can get back (if at all).
