Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka has edge for final spot

New York Mets SP Daisuke Matsuzaka shut out the St. Louis Cardinals into the seventh inning in his spring outing Monday, March 24, and appears to be locked in as the team's No. 5 starter. The team must inform him if he's made the roster by noon Tuesday, March 25, or they must give him a $100,000 retention bonus to send him to the minors or release him. "It certainly gives him an edge, because he's done it before, and he's done it a lot. But certainly, with the way Jenrry threw yesterday, he's got to be in that mix," manager Terry Collins said. Matsuzaka has a 3.86 spring ERA in 18 2/3 innings, and SP Jenrry Mejia has a 2.89 ERA in 9 1/3 innings.
