Extra Bases

Matsuzaka on the mound


Here we are at the Rogers Centre where Daisuke Matsuzaka is throwing a simulated game.

He’s facing Jeremy Hermida, Jonathan Van Every and coaching assistant Ino Guerrero. The evaluators on hand include Ben Cherington, Terry Francona, John Farrell and the rest of the coaches.

UPDATE, 2:50 p.m.: The sim game is over and Dice-K departs with a pat on the back from John Farrell after 70 pitches. More later once we speak to him.
