Koji Uehara did some jogging on the field today and limited throwing but the hamstring injury has still not fully-healed. All signs point to Koji missing his turn in the rotation on Thursday and will spend time on the disabled list. This is a precaution because the pitcher is older and will most likely have an increased workload than what he is used to in Japan.
It has not been decided who will take the turn in the rotation for him but someone may make the move from the bullpen such as Matt Albers or Mark Hendrickson. Manager, Dave Trembley, wants to maintain all of his bullpen for the stretch of these upcoming games so another starter may have to be promoted from the minors.
