New York Mets SP Daisuke Matsuzaka will make the start against the Detroit Tigers Friday, Aug. 23.
Fantasy Tip: Dice-K is only an option in the deepest of NL-only leagues, and the matchup against the Tigers is a rough one. There are probably better options out there.

The New York Mets signed free-agent SP Daisuke Matsuzaka (Indians) to an undisclosed deal Thursday, Aug. 22. Matsuzaka could enter the rotation and take the spot of SP Carlos Torres. The team is trying to limit the innings of SPs Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler down the stretch.
Fantasy Tip: Matsuzaka might need a few minor league tune-ups before jumping into the Mets' rotation. Consider him only if you're desperate in NL-only universes. That's if he even gets called up.

The New York Mets are close to signing free-agent SP Daisuke Matsuzaka (Indians) to an undisclosed deal. Matsuzaka could be a candidate to join the rotation down the stretch with SPs Jeremy Hefner (elbow) and Jenrry Mejia (elbow) done for the year. The team doesn't want to promote SPs Rafael Montero or Jacob deGrom because they are facing innings limits. Matsuzaka was 5-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 19 starts with Triple-A Columbus.
Fantasy Tip: Dice-K would become an NL-only option for owners looking for pitching help, but that's about it. He didn't look very sharp in the minors with Cleveland this season.

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.
