Boston Red Sox

The latest on Koji Uehara, from WEEI's Alex Speier:

The Red Sox, who faced concerns about the possibility of losing a pair of critical roster members in closer Koji Uehara (shoulder stiffness) and second baseman Dustin Pedroia (left wrist soreness), received positive news in the examinations of both players at Mass. General Hospital on Monday (an off-day for the Red Sox). Neither player was diagnosed with structural damage, and so both will avoid a stint on the disabled list. They're being described as day-to-day entering the series against the White Sox.

... Koji Uehara underwent an MRI today at MGH that revealed no structural damage in his right shoulder. He will rejoin the club in Chicago tomorrow, and his status is day-to-day.

Chicago Cubs

Tsuyoshi Wada was named the Pacific Coast League's Pitcher of the Week.  From MiLB.com

Jon Singleton of the Oklahoma City RedHawks and Tsuyoshi Wada of the Iowa Cubs have been named Pacific Coast League Player and Pitcher of the Week for the extended opening week of April 3rd-13th, the league office announced today.

... Tsuyoshi Wada has been dominant on the mound in two starts this season, earning wins against the Nashville Sounds and Memphis Redbirds. In his April 12th outing at Memphis, he held the Redbirds, who were at the time the highest-scoring team in the league, scoreless for 6.2 innings while punching out ten batters. Wada's 18 strikeouts this season are tied for the second-most in the PCL. In 13.1 innings pitched this year, the left-hander has yielded seven hits, one run, and one walk for a 0.60 WHIP.

Wada's 0.68 ERA and .149 average against are each second-best in the PCL. After playing nine seasons in Japan, he was signed by the Baltimore Orioles on Dec. 14, 2011. Wada underwent Tommy John surgery in 2012, and then signed with the Chicago Cubs on Jan. 24th, 2014. The Pitcher of the Week selection is the first of his three-year minor league career.
