Dice-K Returns to Sox Wednesday

Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka is set to rejoin the Red Sox on Wednesday, fresh off a second straight MVP performance in the World Baseball Classic. His native Japan won the inagural tournament in 2006, and again last week.

Sox officials are discussing when to let Dice-K pitch again.

“We have some ideas on how we want to do this with him,” Boston manager Terry Francona said before Tuesday night’s game against the New York Yankees. “We do want to talk with him.”

Reaction: It’s great to see Dice-K back to the Sox and seemingly healthy. Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis weren’t so lucky.

It was great to see Dice-K perform so well yet again in international competition. Ideally, Dice-K will find the strike zone more often in 2009, instead of just lasting five innings every start. Despite his short outings, he finished with 18 wins in 2008, so I guess he can keep doing what he’s doing, too.
