NEW YORK -- Daisuke Matsuzaka tossed three scoreless innings for Single-A St. Lucie on Monday night against Bradenton. Matsuzaka allowed one hit and struck out three in a 39-pitch effort.

"It’s been a while since I’ve pitched in a game, so my focus was on how I prepared and how I went in to the game," Matsuzaka told TCPalm.com through an interpreter. "I was able to do that pretty well. Everything went smoothly. I’d give it a 10."

Terry Collins said Matsuzaka will make one or two more rehab starts before being activated from the disabled list.
