Cleveland Indians release MatsuzakaCLEVELAND - The Indians released right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka on Tuesday at his request, giving the Japanese veteran a chance to catch on with another team after failing to secure a spot in Cleveland’s rotation.
Matsuzaka has spent the entire season at Triple-A Columbus after failing to win a spot in Cleveland’s rotation during spring training.
After working through early season injuries, Matsuzaka has pitched well in recent weeks, going 4-4 with a 3.56 ERA and 54 strikeouts in 10 starts for the Clippers since July 2. AP
