Mets Injury Update: Daisuke Matsuzaka moves rehab to Brooklyn

By on 8/13/2014 07:30:00 AM

The New York Mets entered Tuesday night with a record of 57-63, fourth in the National League East. They are staying within shouting distance of .500 behind a pitching staff that is 10th in the Major Leagues in ERA. The staff could see additional improvement soon, as Daisuke Matsuzaka begins his final stretch of his rehab from an elbow injury in Brooklyn.

I reported on August 11 that Matsuzaka,  who was placed on the disabled list on July 26 with right elbow discomfort, would need one or two more rehab starts before returning to the Mets.

Adam Rubin, who covers the Mets for, tweeted the following update on Matsuzaka.
In 28 games this season, Matsuzaka is 3-3 with a 3.87 ERA. Matsuzaka's best season was in 2009 when he went 18-3 with a 2.90 ERA with the Red Sox.  The eight-year Major League veteran has pitched for the Red Sox and Mets and has a career record of 56-43 with a 4.46 ERA.
