Dice-K’s bad inning at Portland, minor goings on

Look up Daisuke Matsuzaka’s latest rehab start for the Portland Sea Dogs, and you’ll see a very ugly line there: 2IP, 5 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks with 1 HR. The silver lining is that all the damage came in the first inning, and he zipped through the second inning on nine pitches with good control while throwing close to 100%. Let’s hope he can show some more of that up here with the Sox.
OF Ryan Westmoreland is going under the knife after suffering a broken collarbone in the field on Friday night. He literally ran into the fence full speed making a tough running grab, reportedly leaving a hole in the plywood out there.
26-year old Josh Papelbon was recently promoted to Pawtucket. While he isn’t wowing anyone with his stats or stuff, he might be worth a look as a depth reliever next year.
