Red Sox Closer Uehara Out for Season

BOSTON, MA –  Boston Red Sox closer Koji Uehara will miss the rest of the season with a broken right wrist.

Uehara was hit by a line drive in Friday night's game against the Detroit Tigers.

He was diagnosed with a broken bone, and the team said on Monday he will be placed on the disabled list.

The Red Sox said he is expected to make a full recovery.

Uehara was the closer for Boston's 2013 World Series title, getting the final outs in the Game 6 clincher against the St. Louis Cardinals. He is 2-4 with a 2.23 ERA and 25 saves in 27 opportunities this season.
