Daisuke Matsuzaka Activated By Red Sox

With all the kerfuffle surrounding the huge Red Sox/Dodgers trade, and the placement of David Ortiz on the disabled list Monday, there’s one further Red Sox move that sort of went under the radar:

Not only is Daisuke Matsuzaka back on the active roster, but he is starting Monday afternoon’s game against the Kansas City Royals, which, at this writing, is just beginning. He allowed a run in the first inning, unearned partly as a result of an error by Dustin Pedroia.

Matsuzaka had been reactivated from Tommy John surgery earlier this season and did not do well, posting a 6.65 ERA in five starts. He was put back on the DL July 3, so he’s been rehabbing for almost two months. Perhaps it will work this time.
