Matsuzaka On DL With Neck Strain
BOSTON (AP) – Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona doesn't
think early tests show anything serious with injured right-hander
Matsuzaka was scratched just before the first pitch of his
scheduled start Saturday against Philadelphia and later placed on
the 15-day disabled list because of a strained forearm.
Matsuzaka, who started the season on the DL with a neck strain,
is 5-2 with a 4.59 ERA in eight starts this season. He has allowed
41 hits over 49 innings with 37 strikeouts and 23 walks.
