Matsui "not quite ready yet"

There was considerable talk that Hideki Matsui would join the Rays in Boston this weekend, but Manager Joe Maddon said Matsui - hitting . 121 (4-for-33) through his first nine games - was "not quite ready yet.''

Maddon said they aren't as concerned with Matsui's batting average as being sure that he feels ready at the plate, and that isn't the case yet, though he is "close.''
