Teramasa Matsuo allowed one hit over seven scoreless innings Wednesday for low Single-A Greenville.
Matsuo, a 26-year-old signed out of Japan at the end of the spring, has a 1.59 ERA in three May starts after compiling an 8.82 ERA in April. Still, nothing so far suggests that he's a potential major leaguer. Thu, May 15, 2008 03:10:00 AM

Red Sox signed RHP Teramasa Matsuo to a minor league contract.

According to Boston's press release, the 26-year-old Matsuo was the Shikoku Island League MVP in 2007, when he led the league with 15 wins and 159 strikeouts. He had a 1.72 ERA and allowed 85 hits in 152 innings. In 2006, he had an 11-2 record with a 1.82 ERA, 134 strikeouts and 98 hits issued in 138 innings in 2006. Obviously, it's not nearly the same level of competition as the Japanese Pacific or Central Leagues. He's not someone to rush out and grab in keeper leagues.
