Though it is encouraging to note that he plans on playing better than he is capable of playing.

On a related note, Sheffield said:

"My goal is to get a big contract for next season," Sheffieldsaid. "Certainly, I don't want to come back under-paid, where I'm not paid to what I'm capable of. I'm going to do my best to come back and play up to my capabilities, or even more, when that happens is up to the Boss." Sheffield indicated that he may be ready to start baseball activities again in about six weeks, or just as soon as the swelling in his head comes down.

I am in a AL-only league so its not like I can just drop Matsui and pick up a productive player. I could drop Matusi and get the likes of D. Young or J. Reed but these guys have no value and for the most part will sit on my bench. For my team, I think it makes more sense to hang onto Matsui to see if I can't salvage a few productive weeks out of him at the end of the season.

if you have a spare dl slot, he's worth hanging onto
but a lot of people like myself already have the dl spots full.

but i really dont see him back till maybe the last 1-2months, and he probably wont produce much

Our league has 2 DL spots and my team has 3 players on the DL so my DL spots are full as well. David Wells is scheduled to pitch for the Sox on May 26th so I'll be able to stash Matsui in Well's spot very soon.
