Koji Starts All-Star Game

July 26, 2007 | By RotoRob | comment on this post

Thanks to RotoRob contributor Tim McLeod for passing this one along:

Koji Uehara, the closer for the Yomiuri Giants and someone who could be MLB-bound in 2008, started Game 1 of the All-Star Series on Friday.

A hamstring injury in the spring prompted a move to the bullpen for Koji, and he very nicely slid into the closer’s role for the Giants, displaying his usual outstanding command (18 Ks against 2 BBs at last check). Shifting back to starting does nothing but boost his value if he is in fact heading towards an MLB career in 2008.
