Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine indicated that Daisuke Matsuzaka (elbow) likely won't be ready to rejoin the team after his next two rehab starts.
It will be the end of his 30-day rehab assignment, but if the Red Sox don't think he's ready, they can place him back on the disabled list and begin a new rehab assignment. "I don't think he's all that close to pitching in the major league," said Valentine. "Not until he's ready. It's not the calendar that's going to dictate whether or not a guy pitches in the major leagues." Bobby V also indicated that Dice-K is still working on getting his mechanics in order. We had anticipated possibly seeing him before the end of May, but it appears that won't happen.
