CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Indians are reportedly in mix for another arm to the pitching staff, as reports say that Daisuke Matsuzaka is considering a minor league offer to join the Tribe.

Matsuzaka is also looking at possible offers from the Mets as well as the Marlins. In 2012 with Boston, Matsuzaka was 1-7 with an 8.28 ERA, starting 11 games with with the Red Sox.

In six seasons, all with the Red Sox, Matsuzaka was 50-37 with a 4.52 ERA. The 32-year-old free agent may choose the Indians due to his relationship with new manager Terry Francona, who managed him in Boston.

Boston outbid the Rangers, Mets and Yankees back in 2006 to ink Matsuzaka, shelling out a whopping $51.1 to sign him. In 2011 he had Tommy John surgery, and returned to the Majors last June with the Sox.

Matsuzaka throws a solid four-seam fastball, two-seam fastball, cutter, and changeup.
