Red Sox place reliever Uehara on disabled list

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.
