Daisuke Matsuzaka was hit in the leg with a line drive in the sixth inning Tuesday night.
He got out of the inning, but did not return to pitch the seventh inning.
Terry Collins later said he would have pulled Matsuzaka from the game at the time, regardless of the line drive, because Matsuzaka had already thrown more than 100 pitches.
“It’s not too bad,” Matsuzaka said about his leg after the game (ESPN, June 11). “But, it should start swelling up, I think, by tomorrow. So we’ll see what happens.”
