Mets | Fifth starter competition still open

The New York Mets paid SP Daisuke Matsuzaka $100,000 Tuesday, March 25, for the right to send him to the minors if they choose, meaning the competition for the fifth starting spot is still on between him and SP Jenrry Mejia. Each pitcher will start once this weekend. "The competition is still open," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "It doesn't mean the competition is going to be determined exclusively on those two (Montreal) outings." Matsuzaka can demand his release if he's not on the major league roster by May 30.
