Red Sox agree to deal with reliever Koji Uehara

The Red Sox have agreed to a one-year deal with reliever Koji Uehara, according to a league source.

The 37-year-old righthander had a 1.75 ERA and a 0.639 WHIP in 37 games for Texas last season. He struck out 43 and walked three.

The Red Sox have coveted Uehara for years, and he projects as a late-inning option for them.

General manager Ben Cherington, who also added Shane Victorino and Mike Napoli at this week’s winter meetings, said earlier Thursday he had “one other” move he was poised to announce, but added he wasn’t ready to say what it was.
