PHILADELPHIA -- Daisuke Matsuzaka should pitch in a rehab game, likely in the Florida State League, early next week.

Matsusaka, on the DL with right elbow inflammation since July 25, threw 51 pitches off a mound Wednesday in Port St. Lucie, Fla. He is due to have a bullpen session Saturday in advance of next week's minor-league outing.

Matsuzaka would return to the bullpen when he is activated from the DL.
