Koji means relief

Baltimore manager Dave Trembley said that Koji Uehara may be able to start a throwing program soon in order to return from a case of right elbow tendinitis. And when he does return, Trembley said that Uehara will work out of the bullpen for the remainder of the year.

The Orioles hope to have Uehara — the first Japanese player in franchise history — back close to the start of September. And then, instead of working him up to a suitable pitch-count to start, they’ll have him provide an experienced arm in the bullpen for the last month.
