New York Mets

Daisuke Matsuzaka will get another start on June 4 against the Cubs. From the Star-Ledger's Mike Vorkunov:

... Daisuke Matsuzaka will take [Rafael Montero's] place in the rotation and is slotted to start Wednesday against the Cubs. Ricco did not assure any more starts for him after that point, saying only "we'll take it from there."

Matsuzaka has posted a 2.54 ERA this season in 28 1/3 innings, with all but one appearance out of the bullpen. He started one game of a doubleheader Sunday against the Diamondbacks and allowed two runs in six innings, while striking out six.
