Daisuke Matsuzaka has but four career relief appearances to his credit, but already manager Terry Collins is eye-balling him as a potential closer this season.

It'd be an interesting move and not really unheard of either. Dice-K has a 2.08 ERA (1.18 FIP) and a 14.54 K/9 over 4.1 relief innings this year. He may not have high heat, but he's got reasonable command of four pitches and just might make for a decent choice if he can keep the walk rate to a minimum. Collins may start using him in more high-leverage situations to see how he responds.
