The Cleveland Indians re-signed SP Daisuke Matsuzaka and RP Matt Capps to minor league deals Tuesday, March 26, after both were released from their previous deals. Both will likely be reassigned to Triple-A Columbus this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: This was merely a way for Cleveland to avoid paying both pitchers $100,000. Neither should be considered fantasy-relevant unless they are recalled, but even then, they'll probably be relegated to the deepest of AL-only leagues.

Cleveland Indians RP Matt Capps is uncertain what his next step will be after being informed by the club he will not make the opening day roster. Technically, he is still a member of the team's big league camp as a non-roster invitee, and the team informed him they have interest in keeping him in the minor leagues. Before accepting or declining the opportunity to work at Triple-A Columbus, Capps and his agent are searching for a bullpen job in the majors.

Cleveland Indians SP Daisuke Matsuzaka and RP Matt Capps will not crack the team's opening day rotation, but Matsuzaka may accept an offer to join the club's minor league camp. Capps hasn't decided if he'll go to minor league camp.
Fantasy Tip: Dice-K faces an uphill battle to get back to the bigs, but it's entirely possible at some point this season if he can stay healthy and dodge the control problems he's had.
