Analysis: The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Thursday because the deal was pending a physical and had not been announced. The 29-year-old Mujica gives the Red Sox some protection if soon-to-be 39-year-old closer Koji Uehara cannot repeat his 2013 performance next season. Mujica was 2-1 with 37 saves and a 2.78 ERA for the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals last season.
