News: Matsuzaka (elbow), who was just activated off the disabled list Thursday, will remain in New York to see Mets team doctors, ESPNNewYork.com reports. Impact: Matsuzaka could be shut down for the balance of the year with only a month left, depending on what the doctors find.(RotoWire, )

News: Matsuzaka (elbow) was activated from the 15-day DL on Thursday. Impact: Matsuzaka hasn't pitched since July 24 due to elbow soreness, but has steadily been throwing bullpen sessions and making rehab starts for roughly a month. He'll return to the Mets in place of Vic Black, who was placed on the 15-day DL in a corresponding move to make room for Matsuzaka. Until he earns a late-inning bullpen or fifth starter role, there's not much to get excited about here in terms of fantasy value.(RotoWire, )

News: The Mets appear prepared to wait until rosters expand to activate Matsuzaka (elbow), ESPNNewYork.com reports. Impact: According to GM Sandy Alderson, Matsuzaka threw "pretty extensively" on Monday, enough to preclude the right-hander from having to make another rehab start for short-season Brooklyn on Thursday. However, it sounds like the Mets may still wait until next week to activate Matsuzaka, unless they're able to unload Bartolo Colon or another starter in the coming days.(RotoWire, )

News: Matsuzaka (elbow) threw an extensive bullpen session Monday that likely will preclude him from starting for Brooklyn of the New York-Penn League on Thursday. In addition, there is a possibility he is activated prior to Sept. 1, ESPN New York reports. Impact: Matsuzaka has looked good in his rehab starts and had no problems with his injured elbow. A callup before rosters expand likely hinges on whether the Mets can deal Bartolo Colon. New York may go to a six-man rotation in September to give Jacob DeGrom more rest and enable Rafael Montero to see some starts. Dice-K may be part of that rotation but also work out of the bullpen the last month of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Matsuzaka (elbow) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out seven in five shutout innings during a rehab start for Brooklyn of the New York-Penn League on Thursday. Impact: This was Matsuzaka's third rehab start, during which he allowed one run in 14 innings of work. Dice-K has shown he is ready to return and likely will be activated next week, but it remains to be seen who will be sent down to make room for him and what role Matsuzaka will play. However, the likelihood is that Matsuzaka will pitch out of the pen.(RotoWire, )

News: Matsuzaka (elbow) will make another rehab start this week, probably for short-season Brooklyn on Thursday. Impact: With Jacob deGrom returning this week, there's no room in the rotation for Sunday's starter Rafael Montero, let alone Dice-K, so the Mets' plans for him remain murky.(RotoWire, )
