Matsuzaka, 33, went 3-3 with a 4.42 ERA (81 ERA+) in seven starts for the Mets late last season. He spent most of the year in Triple-A with the Indians, where he went 5-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 19 starts. Dice-K missed most of the 2011-12 seasons due to Tommy John surgery.
Matsuzaka will compete with Jenrry Mejia and John Lannan for New York’s fifth starter spot. All three pitchers have dealt with some kind of injury problems in recent years.
He’s a decent depth signing as he finished last year well after a rocky start. That said, I think it would be a good thing for the Mets if Dice-K doesn’t ever make another start for them.
There’s been some talk that the Mets are interested in signing Fernando Rodney. Parnell is an acceptable closer and the Mets would probably get more value out of signing Stephen Drew.
