Update on Matsui: Returning to New York

This release from the Yankees:

Hideki Matsui has developed swelling in his left knee and will return to New York in the next several days to be evaluated by Team Physician Dr. Stuart Hershon.


The fact that he has had his knee drained twice (that we know of), rested for three weeks then experienced swelling after only a few days of BP indicates that he has more than “inflammation.”

This could be a sign he needs surgery, which would knock him out for the season.
