Daisuke Matsuzaka will meet with the media on Wednesday for only the second time since joining the Red Sox. Matsuzaka, who signed a six-year, $52 million contract after the Sox procured his negotiating rights from Japan?s Seibu Lions for $51.1 million, has been working out in Southern California since Jan. 11. The MVP of last winter?s inaugural World Baseball Classic has agreed to let cameras shoot him working out in Mission Viejo, Calif., this afternoon before meeting with reporters at agent Scott Boras? office in Newport Beach. Matsuzaka is expected to report to Fort Myers for the start of spring training on or around Feb. 14. Pitchers and catchers must be in town by Feb. 16. The first workout is scheduled for Feb. 18.
