Matsuzaka throws again

Daisuke Matsuzaka threw his second bullpen session off of a mound in Fort Myers, Fla. today. He threw 65 pitches with increased intensity, throwing all of his pitches. He had no complaints afterward, and he will throw another bullpen Monday.

Manager Terry Francona said last week the Sox will likely have to wait until September for Matsuzaka to make his return, because he will throw four or five innings in his first start back and the Sox will need the extra arms provided by call-ups to use in relief.
