Dice-K Set To Play Winter Ball In Puerto Rico This Year
Former Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka will try to jump-start his Japan League comeback by playing Winter Ball in Puerto Rico. Dice-K—who won a World Series Championship with The Carmine Hose in 2007—is now a member of the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks. He has been sidelined with a right shoulder injury and only made one start for the Hawks—a one-inning stint against the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in which he gave up five runs (three hits, two walks, two hit batsmen). Maybe he can re-find the GyroBall.
