Dice-K released

By Sheldon Ocker Published: March 24, 2013

 The Indians released Daisuke Matsuzaka from the contract he signed Feb. 18 this afternoon.
   Last week the Tribe told Matsuzaka he would not win a berth in the rotation, but he agreed to go to the minors upon receiving a $100,000 retention bonus that bound him to the team until June 1. Otherwise he could have left March 26 and become a free agent.
   It is believed the Indians and Dice-K are working on a new deal that would keep him with the Tribe for a longer period of time. If he had made the 25-man roster, Matsuzaka would have earned $1.5 million for the season.
