Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka a closing option?
New York Mets manager Terry Collins said SP Daisuke Matsuzaka is an option to close out games. RP Jose Valverde held the closing job for less than three weeks, and now RP Kyle Farnsworth is in the ninth-inning role. Matsuzaka has made just two relief appearances for the team, allowing a run on two hits in four innings, with two walks and six strikeouts. One problem with Matsuzaka pitching at the back of the bullpen is that he has value as a long-relief man and a backup for the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Dice-K isn't a realistic option just yet, and it would take a meltdown or injury from Farnsworth for this to become serious. For now, he's a speculative target for those truly desperate for potential save opps.
