Daisuke Matsuzaka is getting lit up this spring

24 Comments

Yes, we know he’s in the best shape of his life and yes we know that spring stats aren’t supposed to mean anything, but Daisuke Matsuzaka’s spring hasn’t been too encouraging.

He got lit up for five runs in 3.2 innings against the Rays today, which brings his ERA on the spring up to 11.42.  What’s more troubling: Buster Olney says that Dice-K was only throwing between 87 and 90 m.p.h..

Does this guy even make the rotation?
