The Red Sox (http://redsox.bostonherald.com/redSox.bg) pursuit of Daisuke Matsuzaka (http://news.bostonherald.com/search/?searchSite=true&keyword=Daisuke+Matsuzaka&mode=all&sorting=pubdate) is not finished but if and when he signs, the Japanese right-hander will have a countryman to keep him company in the clubhouse: Hideki Okajima.


According to a source, the Red Sox are expected to announce soon that they have signed the left-handed reliever, who will turn 31 on Christmas.


A Yomiuri Giant for 11 years until he moved to the Nippon Ham Fighters last season, Okajima is primarily a left-handed specialist, although he has been used as a set-up man and could grow into that role for the Red Sox. He is said to have a devastating curveball but is not a hard thrower.
