Dice K To Get Tommy John

Boston Herald
Daisuke Matsuzaka may wind up needing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, but any decision on that significant procedure, which would require a 12-month minimum layoff, is believed to be weeks away.

In the meantime, Matsuzaka flew home to Japan yesterday, in part to seek traditional Japanese treatment opinions and remedies for his ailing right elbow.

Even if the more extensive MRI reveals a full tear, there is still a chance Matsuzaka will be able to pitch with it and not risk further injury, as there are currently major league pitchers with partially or fully torn UCL’s doing that, according to a baseball source familiar with the type of injury Matsuzaka has.

Well that would suck if Dice K needed Tommy John because he wasn't having a bad year. With John Lackey being the worst pitcher of all time the Sox need some arms in the back end of the rotation. And with all due respect to the Wake and to Alfredo Aceves I feel thats not what need if we are going to be going to the championship.

Terry Francona says that he doesn't need to get surgery so I'm going to stick with that.

Hopefully his Asian medicine will do the trick.
