|Daisuke Matsuzaka makes third rehab start Thursday |

(8/18/14) Mets pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka will make his third rehab start Thursday.

|Daisuke Matsuzaka to remain on rehab assignment |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/17/14) Mets manager Terry Collins said pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka (elbow) is expected to make another rehab start after tossing six innings Saturday for Double-A Binghamton.
"We're very happy with the way he threw," Collins said, per MLB.com. "But right now, we aren't sure where the fit is going to be when he's ready to pitch here."
|Daisuke Matsuzaka tried to keep his major-league career going in 2013 after his largely disappointing tenure with the Red Sox came to an end. Though, it took some work for Matsuzaka to get back into the majors. The right-hander, who signed a six-year, $52 million contract with the Red Sox in December 2006 after being a highly sought after international free agent, initially settled for a minor-league deal with the Indians last spring. However, the Indians let Dice-K toil in the minors until releasing him in late August. Matsuzaka had decent numbers for Triple-A Columbus, going 5-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 19 starts. It was good enough for him to land a deal with the Mets. Matsuzaka got off to a rough start with New York, going 0-3 with a 10.95 ERA in his first three starts, but he would pitch well over the final weeks, going 3-0 with a 1.37 ERA in his last four starts. While Dice-K showed a lot of promise early in his MLB career, injuries derailed his progress and now he just appears to be organizational depth. Matsuzaka will be competing for a spot in the Mets' rotation this spring after signing a minor-league deal in January. He will be just an NL-only Fantasy option, if he emerges with a rotation spot.
