Koji Uehara will miss the remainder of the season

Boston Red Sox closer Koji Uehara will miss the remainder of the season with a fractured wrist after being hit by a line drive Friday.  The 40-year-old was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture.

Uehara closes out the season with 25 saves and a 2.23 ERA in 40 innings.  He held opponents to a .188 batting average and posted a 47/9 K/BB ratio.  It was a great season especially for a player at his age.

The right-hander is under contract through 2016 and is owed $9 million next season.  Junichi Tazawa will take over his duties as the closer.
