Hopefully, owners didn’t forget about Uehara, who began the season on the disabled list. He returned the second week of the year and immediately reassumed his ninth-inning role.

Uehara has one hiccup this season, a blown save in Baltimore on April 25, but other than, he’s been perfect. In fact, the two runs he gave up to the Orioles that night are the only two runs he has yielded all year.

He is 2-1 with eight saves, 1.64 ERA, 0.64 WHIP, 13 strikeouts and two walks in 11 innings.
