Daiskuke Matsuzaka asks to leave; wish granted by Indians

By Sheldon Ocker Published: August 20, 2013

ANAHEIM, Calif.: Daisuke Matsuzaka asked to leave the Indians' organization and was granted his release today.

Matsuzaka signed a minor league contract with the Tribe last winter and has spent the season at Columbus, where he compiled a 5-8 record and 3.92 ERA in 19 starts. In 103 1/3 innings, he walked 39 and struck out 95.

Two weeks ago, an Indians official was asked what chance Matsuzaka had of being a September call-up and said that while the right-hander was performing satisfactorily, ""There are two or three starters ahead of him.''
