Daisuke Matsuzaka (RHP, BOS) returned to BOS rotation Saturday, after more than a year since his last start. A solid, though not spectacular, outing provides owners hope that he is trending more towards his minor league rehab numbers than his last 250 major league innings. Within the same division, BAL Opening Day starter Jake Arrieta (RHP, BAL) was sent to the bullpen due to some very unlucky surface stats.

Hairston has started 10 of 14 games, with his last six starts at 2B, since his May 25 activation from the DL.
