Meanwhile, Koji Uehara has converted his first two save opportunities for the Red Sox. There are some health concerns, but Uehara has been solid all season and thus far has been getting the job done in the ninth. I think Uehara might not be ownable in all formats, but in deeper leagues he is worth a look.
He’s not the player he used to be, but Ichiro Suzuki has been hot of late for the Yankees.
In the month of June, Ichiro is hitting .333 with 3 homers, 10 RBI and seven stolen bases. He is nearing age 40 and I wouldn’t expect much power, but Ichiro could still have enough in the tank to give you decent average, some steals and some runs scored. And at just 49 percent owned, he may be worth a flier.
