Red Sox sign closer Koji Uehara for 2 years

BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox have signed Koji Uehara for two more years, committing $18 million to the reliever who closed out the 2013 World Series but struggled along with the team this season.

One year to the day after Uehara struck out Matt Carpenter to seal Boston's third title in 10 years, the team gave him a deal that will pay him $9 million in each of the next two years, when he will be 40 and 41 years old. General manager Ben Cherington said he thought Uehara had less wear and tear on his arm than other pitchers his age.

"You're really looking at a guy who has been one of the elite relievers in baseball," Cherington said in a conference call with reporters on Thursday night. "We feel really good about the ninth inning when he's pitching out there with a lead. It was a priority for us to retain him."
