Daisuke Matsuzaka was pulled after pitching just 1.1 innings for the PawSox on Tuesday, but not because he threw poorly.

The Red Sox could be scaling him back -- he allowed one earned run and threw 40 pitches -- because they are preparing him to start Saturday in place of Daniel Bard, who was demoted to Triple A Pawtucket on Tuesday afternoon.
