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.
