Yeah, the Warning Light has gone from blue to red, not blinking just yet.
The Red Sox had to stay away from Koji Uehara in Friday night's 4-2 victory against the Yankees, as the star closer felt some tightness in his right shoulder during pregame activities.
"Just tightness before the game playing catch," Uehara said through an interpreter. "It's difficult to explain, but just tightness. Two years ago, when I was with Texas, I felt the same kind of tightness."
In that case, the injury lingered, and recurred, and Uehara missed extended time.
The Red Sox will do everything in their power to make sure that doesn't happen again. For now, the club will monitor his condition on a daily basis, starting with Saturday afternoon's game against the Yankees.
"I can't tell for sure," Uehara said of when he'll pitch again. "I'd like to be back as soon as possible."
