Byrd DFA'd For Matsuzaka

Marlon Byrd was designated for assignment after Friday's game to make room on the roster for Daisuke Matsuzaka, who will start tomorrow afternoon.

Also, Peter Abraham of the Globe goofed when he reported this evening that Dice last started for the Red Sox on June 10, 2011. That day was when Matsuzaka had TJ surgery. His last start (and last appearance on a major league mound) was actually on May 16, 2011.

Fact-checkers? Editors? Reading over your copy before you post it? Not at the Globe.
