Daisuke Matsuzaka Deciding Whether to Accept Minor League Deal

Daisuke Matsuzaka's desire to pitch in the Majors again may come down to signing a minor league contract.  No team has expressed interest in signing the 32-year old to a Major League contract.  In fact, many teams have passed on even considering him for a minor league deal.  But Matsuzaka does have his options whittled down to three different organizations or a return to pitch in Japan.

According to Gen Sueyoshi of yakyubaka.com, Matsuzaka is down to deciding between the New York Mets, the Cleveland Indians, and the Miami Marlins.

He is also mulling a return to pitch in Japan.
Matsuzaka underwent Tommy John surgery in June of 2011.  He returned in 2012 only to suffer another injury.  In total, Matsuzaka appeared in just 19 games for the Boston Red Sox over the past two seasons.  Beyond that, Matsuzaka has never developed into the pitcher the team thought he would.  He has a 117-116 career record with a 4.67 ERA in six seasons.
