Matsui joins the team against Tampa Bay. Will Torre put him into the lineup on Tuesday? I think so with Giambi's hand still bothering him, but I wouldn't doubt seeing him play first if he feels up to it. It's the perfect time to get Hideki a few at bats to test his wrist, especially with Tampa Bay's rotation and a comfortable lead in the division. Left field looks to be all Mekly's at this point and good for him. He deserves it.
