FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Daisuke Matsuzaka is expected to pitch in a rehab game early next week.

Matsuzaka only stepped onto a mound this past week, so his move to a rehab assignment seems a little hasty. Of course, what are they going to do...ruin him? He's Dice-K. He's already fairly close to that anyway. Should he not suffer any setbacks, he could be back on the hill for the Mets within two to three weeks.ANALYST: Howard Bender
