Analysis: Uehara (2-3, 4.50 ERA) tossed just seven pitches in the ninth inning of Tuesday night's 4-0 victory over San Francisco before grasping his right arm. The 41-year-old native of Japan quickly summoned Red Sox manager John Farrell to the mound and promptly made his exit into the clubhouse. Boston, which is already without the services of closer Craig Kimbrel (knee), is expected to turn to recently acquired veteran right-hander Brad Ziegler to finish off games.
