Daisuke Matsuzaka Placed on Disabled List

Daisuke Matsuzaka was a late scratch before todays game, and instead of starting, was placed on the disabled list with a right forearm strain.

No word on who will take over Daisuke's spot in the rotation. With Beckett still a ways from returning, the Sox' only possible spot starters are Michael Bowden, who hasn't seen any real success in the majors, and Boof Bonser, who hasn't really given any reason to think he can get major league outs this year either. For today, Dustin Richardson has been called up from Pawtucket.

As for Daisuke, well...the disappointment just continues for the $100 million man. Just when it looked like the Sox might be putting together a viable back-of-the-rotation, he's back on the DL (where he has spent most of the last few years).
