Not sure where to post this so...

Veteran Koji Uehara, whose season appeared in doubt following a pectoral injury on July 19, threw a 25-pitch bullpen on Monday and could activated as soon as the weekend, according to manager John Farrell.

He came out of todays work session in good fashion, Farrell said. It was 25 pitches to hitters with good intensity, both his fastball and his split. He may have mixed in an occasional cutter, but its been impressive to see how hes handled the volume, and now three times on the mound the intensity to his bullpens and the BP.

The next step for Uehara is another bullpen on Wednesday, followed by one on Saturday in Oakland before the Red Sox face the As. He could be activated shortly thereafter, if all goes according to plan, particularly since the minor league seasons end next Monday, depriving him the opportunity for a rehab assignment.weei.com
