Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched in a rehab game at Ni-gun today. He started the game against Chunichi at Chikugo and gave up two runs on four hits and three walks over two innings of work. He threw fifty-two pitches and topped out at 144km/h.
Matsuzaka’s next rehab game could come about a week later during a Chunichi series at Nagoya Stadium. The next hurdle will be about sixty pitches.
