Mets News: Mets sign Dice-K to minor league deal

Mets News:

The New York Mets have added Daisuke Matsuzaka to their fifth-starter competition.

Matsuzaka has agreed to a minor league deal with the club that includes an invite to spring training.

He will compete with left-hander John Lannan and right-hander Jenrry Mejia for a rotation role. Prospects Jacob deGrom and Rafael Montero officially will be in that competition as well, but they appear targeted for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Lannan agreed to a minor league deal with the Mets last weekend.

Matsuzaka, 33, went 3-3 with a 4.42 ERA in seven late-season starts with the Mets in 2013 after opting out with the Cleveland Indians, for whom he had been pitching in Triple-A.

Mets News: Mets sign starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka

Mets News:

Daisuke Matsuzaka has agreed to a deal with the New York Mets, reports’s Jon Heyman. Dice-K is expected to immediately join the club’s major league roster.

Matsuzaka had spent the season with the Cleveland Indians’ Triple A affiliate. He tried to catch on with the team during Spring Training but failed to make the rotation to start the year. He stayed with the organization, though, and has found his form recently. In his last 10 starts with the Columbus Clippers, Matsuzaka went 4-4 with a 3.56 ERA and 54 strikeouts.

The Indians released Matsuzaka on Tuesday at his request so he could try breaking in with another major league team.

Matsuzaka was a star with Japan’s Seibu Lions and made a splash when he decided to move to the Major Leagues. The Red Sox paid $51.1 million for the right to negotiate with Matsuzaka in November 2006 and signed the pitcher to a six-year, $52 million deal.

Dice-K had his best season in Boston in 2008, when he went 18-3 with a 2.90 ERA. But elbow injuries took their toll on Matsuzaka, who is only 6-feet tall and 185 pounds. He had Tommy John surgery in 2011 and struggled with he returned last season.

The Mets had ideas of signing Matsuzaka in the off-season, but nothing came of it...

The Beltran Chronicles - A Trade Story

This is a recap for all the Mets Fans who don't know whats going on with the potential Beltran deal. Courtesy of  MLBTR.

On Tuesday at the Winter Meetings, the idea of the Red Sox acquiring Carlos Beltran surfaced.

For the remainder of the day, we heard a few rumblings.

Then "A Source" involved in the discussions told Joel Sherman of the New York Post that nothing was close with Boston and Beltran (Twitter link). Sherman was told yesterday that the Red Sox see Beltran as a fallback.

Then we got an update form's Jon Heyman, who spoke to one NL executive who estimated the Mets would have to eat about half of Beltran's salary in order to move him (Twitter link).
