"The Red Sox have placed pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka on waivers, according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney.
Matsuzaka has only thrown 30 innings for the Red Sox this season. He spent the early part of the year rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. Once he returned, Dice-K made only five starts before landing on the disabled list.
In his first start since coming of the disabled list, Matsuzaka was impressive. The 31-year-old threw seven innings, giving up one unearned run, and striking out six.
Matsuzaka is in the final year of his six-year, $52 million deal. He is set to become a free agent at the end of the season."
