    What will Red Sox bullpen look like in 2014?

    A look at how the bullpen shapes up after the addition of Edward Mujica:

    Closer

    RHP Koji Uehara: Counting the playoffs, he appeared in 86 games last season. Breaks could be needed.

    Setup men

    RHP Junichi Tazawa: Struck out 72 and walked 12 in 68 innings. With confidence, he’s a future closer.

    LHP Craig Breslow: A workhorse down the stretch and in the postseason.

    LHP Andrew Miller: Broken foot in July ended the best season of his career.

    RHP Brandon Workman: Rookie quickly earned trust as a reliever. But his future could be in the rotation.

    Fighting for a job

    LHP Franklin Morales: Injuries limited him in 2013. But his fastball is too lively to ignore.

    RHP Burke Badenhop: Acquired from Milwaukee last month. Red Sox like his groundball rate.

    LHP Drake Britton: Rookie showed fortitude last season after starting in the minors.

    RHP Alex Wilson: A thumb injury kept him out of the majors for the final three months.

    RHP Rubby De La Rosa: He turns 25 in March. Clock is ticking for a talented pitcher. Is he a starter or reliever?

    RHP Brayan Villarreal: Obtained in the Jake Peavy/Jose Iglesias trade, he appeared in only one game and walked in the running run.

    RHP Steven Wright: Knuckleballer could be long reliever. Faces rotation squeeze in Triple A.
