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 manager Terry Francona hinted that SP Daisuke Matsuzaka may not begin the season in the starting rotation, because he hasn't been stretched out enough in spring training. He only tossed three innings in a minor-league game against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, March 16, allowing one run on four hits while walking three and striking out five. "We've got to figure out what to do going forward," Francona said. "Because of the setback and coming into camp without throwing bullpens, he's only out to three innings. We're starting to run out of innings. We're going to have to sit down and figure this out and we will." It is unknown if the team would consider sending Matsuzaka to the minors.

Cleveland Indians SP Daisuke Matsuzaka (calf) will throw three innings in a minor league game Saturday, March 16, as he competes for a spot in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: At this point, Dice-K is probably considered a long shot to win a rotation spot. Chronic injury problems and a lack of consistent command have left Matsuzaka battling to get back in the big league spotlight. He's an AL-only end-game gamble if you're feeling frisky.
