A day after Daisuke Matsuzaka was scratched from facing live hitters for the first time this spring, there wasn’t that much to update.
Matsuzaka experienced some neck stiffness while warming up prior to his scheduled live batting practice session on Saturday, so the Red Sox decided to call it off. On Sunday, there was improvement, but it was decided to continue to err on the side of caution.
“I feel a little better than yesterday, but I discussed things with the coachdes and trainers and the decision was to give it one more day,” Matsuzaka said. “Beyond tomorrow, we are going to see based on how I feel tomorrow.”
