The latest on Daisuke Matsuzaka (BOS), from NESN's Didier Morais:

With 11 games remaining on the schedule, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine announced the team would skip Daisuke Matsuzaka's next turn in the rotation and give youngster Zach Stewart a shot instead.

... But it doesn't mean Matsuzaka is done for the season. Valentine confirmed that the 32-year-old would receive one more start, despite surrendering four or more runs in each of his past four outings.
