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 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 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.
