The Red Sox saw some encouraging signs from an extended bullpen session Uehara threw on Tuesday.
"Good," said manager John Farrell. "Similar aggressiveness to in-game. There was finish to his split. As much as the bullpen is going to tell you without the reaction of a hitter, this was part of what we agreed upon to set out a plan. That was a number of days where there was no throw, some long toss and bullpen and get him back in game action."
