Daisuke Matsuzaka tossed 15 warm-up pitches in a bullpen session on the 9th and had to call it quits after he started feeling nauseous. He apparently took in a lot of fluids while resting in the trainer's room. It doesn't appear to be a cold -- Terry Francona told reporters he felt that it might have been something he ate. This setback should have no effect on his next start.
Kei Igawa gave up 3 runs over 3.1 innings of relief work in a triple-A game against the Charlotte Knights on the 9th. Final line: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 SO
