FOX Sports' Jon Morosi hears that Koji Uehara's new one-year deal with the Red Sox is worth $4.25 million.

That's a pretty inexpensive contract for a guy who had a 1.75 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 43/3 K/BB ratio in 36 innings this past season for the Rangers. Uehara carries some injury concerns, but he should be a force near the back end of the Boston bullpen if he's able to remain healthy. The deal should be finalized this weekend.
