News: The Red Sox have no plans to shut down the struggling Uehara, the Providence Journal reports. Boston's closer has allowed an earned run or inherited runners to score in four straight appearances. Impact: Uehara is showing no signs of fatigue and continues to work as normal during his pre-game throwing program. Coaches and trainers don't detect anything abnormal, other than the results.(RotoWire, )

News: Uehara (6-4) blew a second straight save opportunity Monday night in an extra-inning win over Toronto. He was credited with the win after Boston's offense picked him up in extra innings. Impact: Uehara was unable to prevent three inherited runners from scoring after Clay Buchholz loaded the bases with one out in the ninth. No runs were charged to Uehara, who said he's been having problems lately locating his splitter. In his last four outings, Uehara has allowed seven runs on 10 hits (five for extra bases) and one walk in 3.1 innings.(RotoWire, )

News: Uehara was tagged for five runs on five hits, walking one and striking out one while recording just two outs in a 5-3 loss to the Mariners on Friday night. Impact: An extremely rare implosion for the Boston closer resulted in his third blown save on the season. There were a couple of hard hit balls but some of the damage came from bloops that found a hole so the outcome could easily have been different. He tossed 38 pitches in the game so his availability could be in question Saturday, but his job is certainly still secure.(RotoWire, )

News: With the Red Sox falling out of contention, manager John Farrell will not be pushing Uehara over the final six weeks, the Providence Journal reports. Impact: We don't see Farrell using other pitchers to save games, but there will be non-save situations where Uehara's usage is affected. For example, in Friday night's extra-inning affair, Uehara needed just seven pitches to get through an inning, but did not come back for a second inning.(RotoWire, )
