Red Sox's Koji Uehara (pectoral) long tosses on Wednesday

Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Koji Uehara (pectoral) took part in long toss again on Wednesday.

What It Means:

Uehara was throwing from 150 feet out on Tuesday and did likewise on Wednesday. He has yet to begin throwing from the mound, so an early-to-mid September return could be in the cards if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Uehara is having a much better season than his 4.50 ERA might indicate, and is sporting a 2.55 SIERA with a 35.17 percent strikeout rate. We project him to post a 4.09 ERA over the remainder of the season.
