Matsuzaka elbow issue not severe

By Adam Rubin

NEW YORK -- Daisuke Matsuzaka, who landed on the disabled list on Friday with right elbow inflammation, should resume tossing a baseball in three or four days, Terry Collins said.

Collins said the elbow issue does not appear to be severe and that anti-inflammatory medication has sufficiently addressed the swelling.

Matsuzaka is not eligible to be activated from the DL until Aug. 9.
