Red Sox Place Koji Uehara On 15-Day DL With Strained Pectoral, Call Up Noe Ramirez

        BOSTON (AP) – Koji Uehara, who took over the closer’s role for Boston when Craig Kimbrel was injured, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Red Sox with a right pectoral strain.

        Right-hander Noe Ramirez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday to replace the right-handed Uehara on the 25-man roster.

        The 41-year-old Uehara is 2-3 with a 4.50 ERA and six saves in 39 appearances this season.
