P Matsuzaka injures arm at fan event in Japan


P Matsuzaka injures arm at fan event in Japan

Former major league pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka has a history of arm problems, but nothing quite like his latest injury. Matsuzaka, who last pitched in the majors in 2014, is suffering from pain in his right shoulder after an overzealous fan pulled on his pitching arm during a fan event at spring training in Okinawa, Japan, according to his latest team, the Chunichi Dragons of the Nippon Professional Baseball league.

The Dragons have told him to stop throwing for the time being. Matsuzaka, 38, started his major league career as a touted 26-year-old with the Boston Red Sox in 2007, going 15-12 with a 4.40 ERA and finishing fourth in American League Rookie of the Year voting. He went 18-3 with a 2.90 ERA a year later.

Arm problems limited him to just 55 starts in the next four seasons before he underwent Tommy John surgery in 2011. He pitched for the New York Mets in 2013 and 2014, ending an eight-year career in the majors with a 56-43 record and a 4.45 ERA. Matsuzaka underwent shoulder surgery after returning to Japan, where he pitched one inning in three seasons before signing with the Dragons last year and earning the league's Comeback Player of the Year honors.
