After weeks of searching, GM Jon Daniels has acquired some help for his bullpen. The Rangers will acquire Koji Uehara from the Orioles for Chris Davis and Tommy Hunter, according to Dan Connolly and Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.
Uehara, 36, has a 1.72 ERA with 11.9 K/9 and 1.5 BB/9 in 47 innings this year. He earns $3MM and has a $4MM option for '12 that vests with another 12 appearances. He'll be a welcome addition to the back of manager Ron Washington's bullpen. Dan Mennella has all the fantasy angles covered at CloserNews.
