Hideki Matsui tossed batting practice at Staten Island on Saturday. From Newsday's Marcus Henry:

Matsui, who threw 120 pitches during a BP session for the Yankees' New York-Penn League Class A affiliate on Staten Island, enjoyed helping the players, but he has no commitment with the Yankees and has no plans to manage.

"No, not really," Matsui replied through interpreter Roger Kahlon when asked if he wants to run a major-league team. "This opportunity just came about and just kind of happened. That's really it. There's nothing more beyond this."

"We just introduced ourselves. That's about it," Matsui said of his interaction with the players. "But hopefully, I'll do well enough so they'll want me to come back."

Matsui faced ten batters and threw 122 pitches over about ten minutes.

He is also scheduled to toss batting practice at Staten Island on Monday and Tuesday.

Norichika Aoki MIL MIL 4 @ WAS 0 RF 5 0 1 0 0 0 1 .285

Batted lead-off. F7, 1B6, G4, G4 (force), G5. ... Contract info from MLB Blogs' Adam McCalvy:

Previously, a club official told MLB.com that Aoki's two-year contract, which runs through the end of 2013 and has a $1.5 million option for 2014, did not include language calling for the Brewers to release him when that deal is up. Under that scenario ... Aoki would have had three years of arbitration-eligibility from 2015-17 and would have remained Brewers property.

But that is not the case, according to Aoki's agent, Nez Balelo of CAA Sports, and Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash, who double-checked the language in the contract on Monday. It includes language stipulating Aoki will be an untethered free agent at the end of his current deal, whether or not the Brewers exercise their option.
