New York Mets
The latest on Daisuke Matsuzaka, from the NY Daily News' Kristie Ackert:

New York Yankees
The latest on Masahiro Tanaka, from NJ.com's Brendan Kuty:
... The latest setback in Tanaka's recovery from a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament could push the 25-year-old into the early offseason. Tanaka won't quit until the Yankees have determined whether he can return to his old form with the injury or if he needs Tommy John surgery.
"I don't know how much (torn ligaments) really heal over," manager Joe Girardi said. "The point is whether you could throw with it."
... The plan for Tanaka is work out at Yankee Stadium for the next few days and to see Dr. Christopher Ahmad, the team physician, on Monday — an off day.
... Tanaka isn't expected to throw off a mound again until Thursday, Girardi has said.
