According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Daisuke Matsuzaka and the Cleveland Indians have agreed to a minor league deal.
Matsuzaka will reunite with his former manager in Boston, Terry Francona, and try to regain some of his success he had in his first couple of seasons while playing in the Hub. Daisuke won 33 games in his first two seasons in Boston, going 18-3 in his second season, but has only won 17 games since that point while suffering from numerous injuries and inconsistencies.
Heyman goes on to report that Matsuzaka can stand to make as much as $4 million, if he reaches certain goals with the Indians.
Cleveland made another minor league move today when the Indians signed veteran first baseman Jason Giambi to a minor league deal, according to the Denver Post's Troy Renck. The 42 year old Giambi is expected to play designated hitter if he makes the team. If Giambi makes the team, he would make $750,000 plus incentives.
