Before the game [Friday] Koji felt a little stiffness in his throwing program, so we felt it best to stay away from him. Precautionary. This will be a day-to-day type of thing. We'll check with him tomorrow. ... Based on what Koji's expressed, as far as the stiffness, this doesn't seem to be a one-pitch injury type thing.Koji Uehara:
Just tightness before the game playing catch. It's difficult to explain, but just tightness. Two years ago, when I was with Texas, I felt the same kind of tightness. ... I can't tell for sure [when I will pitch]. I'd like to be back as soon as possible.Gordon Edes, ESPNBoston:
That injury [in June 2012] was described as a strained latissimus dorsi, a muscle in his upper back, and he missed 66 games.Uehara:
It's not something I feel all the time. It's not pain. It's tightness when I throw. I feel it.
