The former Boston Red Sox pitcher is back in the news for unfortunate reasons:
He was diagnosed with inflammation in his right shoulder after an "overzealous fan" yanked his arm during a fan event in Okinawa, Japan, for the Chunichi Dragons of the Nippon Professional Baseball league.
Matsuzaka was diagnosed with inflammation in his throwing arm as a result of the incident, and the Dragons on Tuesday told him not to throw for the time being.
The 38-year-old Matsuzaka has a history of arm trouble.
He will not be ready by Opening Day
