DAISUKE MATSUZAKA RUMORS

Japanese Team Offers Dice-K Four-Year Deal

Sooner of later, baseball is a closed circle. Former Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka may experience this hardball truism soon, as he has a contract offer from a Japanese team. The Pacific League Champion Fukuoa Softbank Hawks have offered Dice-K a four-year contract—said to be worth $3.58 million per year. Currently with the New York Metropolitans, Matsuzaka has a very specific...

New York Mets free agent projections: the bullpen

With the conclusion of the World Series yesterday, the MLB offseason has officially begun. As free agency begins, the New York Mets are in a somewhat odd situation in that they only have one pending free agent (not counting the retiring Bobby Abreu). That unique player is Daisuke Matsuzaka. Matsuzaka’s pending free agency leads me to begin my offseason analysis with the Mets...

New York Mets trade rumors: Dice-K edition

The New York Mets are more likely to be sellers than buyers at the 2014 trading deadline. One possible player to be traded, though uncorroborated by any official source, is Daisuke Matsuzaka. Dice-K has done all that the Mets have asked of him and more this season. Operating as both a starter and out of the bullpen, Matsuzaka has been one of the most consistent performers this season...

New York Mets: Why Daisuke Matsuzaka has been the biggest surprise

Starter didn’t get out of the 4th? Matsuzaka will pitch 3 in relief...

New York Mets: Matsuzaka, Kirk up, Lannan down, Lagares to DL

The New York Mets made a pair of transactions in the last 24 hours. The first was placing Juan Lagares on the DL and calling up Kirk Nieuenhuis to play center field. The second was made just hours ago when they sent John Lannan to the minors and called up Daisuke Matsuzaka. Kirk Nieuenhuis looks to make an impact with the Mets following Juan Lagares’s injury Lagares was injured...

Did Mets Fix Daisuke Matsuzaka Only To Lose Him?

Even knowing that the New York Mets would not have Matt Harvey next season, there was a slight glimmer of optimism they might have enough to piece together a rotation and spend elsewhere. That glimmer is fading. MATSUZAKA: Will he walk away? Pitching coach Dan Warthen fixed Daisuke Matsuzaka’s long and cumbersome delivery, complete with a hitch. With a faster delivery, Matsuzaka...

Does Daisuke Matsuzaka have a future with the Mets?

After a dreadful beginning with the Mets, Daisuke Matsuzaka has pitched fabulously over his last four starts, posting a 3-0 record while recording a quality outing in each of last three starts (only missing a quality outing by one/third of an inning in the start before this stretch). Matsuzaka was simply dominant in the Mets’ 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday afternoon...

It’s time to replace Daisuke Matsuzaka with Darin Gorski

When Daisuke Matsuzaka was first posted, I wanted the Mets to win the bid for him. A few years ago I proposed a trade of down-on-their luck pitchers, with the Mets sending Oliver Perez to Boston for Matsuzaka. When they finally picked him off the scrap heap, I was generally in favor of the move. But enough is enough. There’s no reason to subject either the fans or the other...
