Mets | Close to signing Daisuke Matsuzaka

The New York Mets are close to signing free-agent SP Daisuke Matsuzaka (Indians) to an undisclosed deal. Matsuzaka could be a candidate to join the rotation down the stretch with SPs Jeremy Hefner (elbow) and Jenrry Mejia (elbow) done for the year. The team doesn't want to promote SPs Rafael Montero or Jacob deGrom because they are facing innings limits. Matsuzaka was 5-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 19 starts with Triple-A Columbus.

Fantasy Tip: Dice-K would become an NL-only option for owners looking for pitching help, but that's about it. He didn't look very sharp in the minors with Cleveland this season.
