Uehara reaches agreement with Red Sox

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Reliever Koji Uehara has reached an agreement with the Boston Red Sox, pending a physical.

The 37-year-old right-hander spent the last two seasons with Texas, and Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday that he had tried to re-sign him before Uehara decided to accept Boston's offer.

``We would have liked to have him back,'' Daniels said. ``We made an offer early in the process.''

Uehara had a 1.75 ERA in 37 relief appearances this year, holding batters to a .160 average.

Earlier in the week, Texas agreed to an $8 million, two-year contract with Joakim Soria, who is coming back from elbow surgery.

``Once we signed Joakim, we held back from making other proposals to relievers right now, just `til we know what's going on with the rest of the club,'' Daniels said. ``It's still an area that we need to continue to address, and that's why we tried to do it a little on the cheaper side while we look at some of these other things.''
