Koji creeps closer

Koji Uehara will begin his rehab from a partially torn flexor tendon in his pitching elbow on Wednesday, when he travels to the team’s Minor League complex in Sarasota, Fla. Uehara will begin a throwing program and will point toward a return in early September.

Uehara, who has been sidelined since the end of June, will be making his return as a reliever. And if he thrives there, it may be tough for the Orioles to envision him as anything else. Uehara, at 34 years old, may hold up better in shorter outings than he did in starts.
