Daisuke Matsuzaka (elbow inflammation) allowed one run and three hits over six innings in a rehab start for Double-A Binghamton.
This was as good as it could have been for Matsuzaka and he should be ready to return. Where he ends up -- rotation or bullpen -- will depend on Jake deGrom's rehab and how Rafael Montero fares in his next start.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Chad Smith has arrived in camp on Saturday.
Smith was just claimed off waivers from the Tigers on Thursday so he had a couple of days to get his things and head to the A's spring training facility. He's a long shot to make the 25-man roster, but if he can continue to post similar strikeout and walk rates that he did in Double and Triple-A last year, he could get a call-up at some point.
