Hirokazu Sawamura throws a bullpen on Wednesday

Hirokazu Sawamura threw a 23-pitch bullpen on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

It took Sawamura a bit to get through the intake process as he came over from Japan, so this was his first official day in camp. Despite having some closer experience back in Japan, Red Sox manager Alex Cora isn't considering him as an option for the ninth inning right now.

Hirokazu Sawamura won't be a candidate to close in Boston

Red Sox manager Alex Cora says Hirokazu Sawamura isn't a candidate to close this season.

Fantasy Impact

That means the "battle" for Boston's closer job is likely between Matt Barnes and Adam Ottavino, with Barnes being the frontrunner. Hopefully Cora makes an official announcement at some point this spring.
