FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Boston Red Sox closer Koji Uehara threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Monday, and the news is not good: He felt the same sensation in his left hamstring that has prevented him from taking the mound since March 14.

The 33-year-old has pitched in parts of eight seasons at the major league level, with Atlanta, St. Louis, Arizona, New York-NL and San Diego, going 9-15,...
Twenty-four of the 25 roster spots on the Indians' Opening Day roster, barring an injury in the next week, are known. There are now three candidates for the 25th spot. Indians manager Terry Francona named relief pitcher Austin Adams, first baseman Jesus Aguilar and and utility-man Michael Martinez as the three contenders. It's difficult to trust spring training numbers, especially for pitchers. As it stands, Adams hasn't been very productive. He has a 5.87 ERA in 7 2/3 innings pitched, though he does have nine strikeouts. He'd be the eighth member of the bullpen. Aguilar has hit well...
