Hideki Matsui hasn’t seen much action lately. He’s been riding the bench since the first game of Saturday’s double header and is 0 for his last 16. Since returning from his knee injury, Matsui is hitting just .205/.267/.325 in 90 plate appearances. Now, word comes that, as soon as the Yankees are eliminated, Matsui will probably get the knee surgery he’s been putting off for a while. Considering his lack of production over the last few weeks, he probably should have just gotten the surgery earlier this year. Matsui is under contract for the 2009 season, and it will be interesting to see how the Yankees manage to slot him into their plans to say the least.
