Boston Red Sox trade deadline: Offers for Koji Uehara, Junichi Tazawa weren't compelling enough

Boston Red Sox trade deadline: Offers for Koji Uehara, Junichi Tazawa weren't compelling enough

BOSTON -- Closer Koji Uehara and setup man Junichi Tazawa are the two Boston Red Sox veterans who likely would have brought back the best return if they were traded at the non-waiver deadline earlier today. But the return apparently...

Red Sox 'have interest' in Craig Kimbrel trade

The Red Sox could solve a lot of bullpen problems by trading for one of the best relievers in the game. The Red Sox bullpen has been a disappointment in 2015, and there are no guaranteed long-term fixes sitting either in the majors or the minors at the moment. Koji Uehara is a free agent after 2016 and will also be 41 next season, and Junichi Tazawa only has one year left on his deal as well. All of that has apparently added up to Boston having interest in trading for Padres' closer Craig Kimbrel, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

They have lacked a genuine No. 1 starter since the first day of spring training.But have you seen the bullpen lately?Other than 40-year-old closer Koji Uehara, remarkably consistent setup man Junichi Tazawa and, depending on the matchups, right-hander Alexi Ogando and lefty specialist Tommy Layne, manager John Farrell doesn’t have many trustworthy options.

Red Sox Notebook: Noe Ramirez makes debut

The Red Sox wished they could have used right-handed reliever Junichi Tazawa last night.They sure could have used him.Manager John Farrell wanted to use Tazawa in the eighth inning to face right-handed hitting Carlos Correa with the game tied. However, the manager had to go with left-hander Craig Breslow and the southpaw gave up a go-ahead solo home run to the rookie phenom.
