It seems Daisuke Matsuzaka will get to play some catch again sometime on or after the 21st.  The Red Sox appear to be taking things really carefully with Matsuzaka.

On the 16th, Matsuzaka worked on exercises designed to help strengthen his legs and his trunk muscles.

According to Sponichi, Junichi Tazawa is vying for one of the two remaining spots on the opening day roster.

Ryota Igarashi threw about 45 pitches during a bullpen session on the 16th; Hisanori Takahashi about 80.  Pitching coach Dan Warthen watched both of them throw.  It seems neither pitcher has any pitch limits on them yet.
