Indians | Daisuke Matsuzaka might not crack starting rotation
Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona hinted that SP Daisuke Matsuzaka may not begin the season in the starting rotation, because he hasn't been stretched out enough in spring training. He only tossed three innings in a minor-league game against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, March 16, allowing one run on four hits while walking three and striking out five. "We've got to figure out what to do going forward," Francona said. "Because of the setback and coming into camp without throwing bullpens, he's only out to three innings. We're starting to run out of innings. We're going to have to sit down and figure this out and we will." It is unknown if the team would consider sending Matsuzaka to the minors.
