Daisuke Matsuzaka shooting for a June return

11 Comments

The common thinking is that Daisuke Matsuzaka is going to be set to return from his rehab in July, but Nick Carfado is reporting that things have been going well and that his bullpen session yesterday was “very impressive” and that he’s “throwing hard and using his secondary pitches.”  As such, Matsuzaka is thinking more along the lines of June.

When he went down last year, most people assumed that he’d never throw another pitch for the Red Sox.  How weird/cool would it be if he came back and played a key part on a Red Sox playoff push?  And if he found his gyroball and was a closer or something?
