Matsuzaka throwing in minor league

FORT MYERS, Fla. David Aardsma is starting today’s game against the Jays.

Daisuke Matsuzaka is throwing a minor league game instead of the major league game due to the uncertainty of whether there was going to be a game. Umpires are currrenty convening at home plate to go over the ground rules. The Sox are getting ready to take the field.

No word on whether the game time will be shortened so they can accommodate their travel schedule to Japan.
