Daisuke Matsuzaka will not require surgery on his injured right elbow. He will not pick up a ball to throw for 7-10 days while he rests.
So while no surgery is required, Dice-K has been completely shut down for a week and form there, the doctors will evaluate him. He's probably going to need to be brought along slowly, so he could probably need another two weeks beyond that. Bottom line, not that you should have been using him anyway, don't expect him to come back anytime soon.ANALYST: Howard Bender
