If the Boston Red Sox look to be sellers at the trade deadline and get rid of their most valuable trade chips, one name that could be on the move is closer Koji Uehara.
"If the Red Sox don’t get back in the race, they will have a good market for Uehara," Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe writes.
“Nobody knows what the Red Sox are going to do because they don’t know what they’re going to do,” said one NL executive. “They’ve got a few players teams would want.”
Uehara has been extremely productive and efficient since returning from a hamstring injury in mid-April, posting a 2.79 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 32 appearances while converting on 18 of 20 save attempts.
