DAISUKE'S RETURN ON SCHEDULE
Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched 3 innings of rehab ball for the Sox' Gulf Coast League affiliate in Fort Myers yesterday. He threw 37 pitches (surprisingly low for 3 innings), struck out 4, walked none, allowed 1 hit, and didn't allow a run.
His upcoming rehab starts:
Saturday 8/29 with AA Portland
Thursday 9/3 with AAA Pawtucket
Unfortunately, AAA Pawtucket's season ends on September 7th. The Sea Dogs end their season on the same day. So Matsuzaka might have to finish his rehab starts with the big club.
