Matsunaka goes 1-for-4 in rehab DH start at Ni-gun

Nobuhiko Matsunaka (SOF), making his way back from triangular fibrocartilage injury, was the starting DH and batted fourth in a Ni-gun game against Hanshin earlier today and went 1-for-4.  Matsunaka had actually made his first Ni-gun rehab game appearance yesterday as a pinch-hitter in the 6th and grounded out to second.

Matsuanaka will continue to play in a number of rehab games moving forward before the clubs decides on when he'll make his return to the active roster.
