News: Matsuzaka (elbow) should resume throwing in three or four days, according to manager Terry Collins, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports. Impact: Collins said the elbow issue does not appear to be severe and that anti-inflammatory medication has sufficiently addressed the swelling. He could be able to come off the DL when first eligible on Aug. 9.(RotoWire, )

News: Matsuzaka (elbow) will rest 7-10 days before attempting to throw again, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. Impact: Matsuzaka landed on the DL on Saturday due to elbow inflammation, but surgery has been ruled out for now. The team will likely have their reliever undergo an additional MRI once the inflammation heals up, which should provide better insight as to the degree of damage, as the scan will be easier to read. It sounds as if the Mets are preparing for Matsuzaka to endure an extended absence, regardless of what information the results bring forth.(RotoWire, )

News: Matsuzaka (elbow) was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday. Impact: The Mets sent Matsuzaka back to New York on Friday to undergo an MRI on his right elbow, and while it seems that exam revealed just inflammation, the 33-year-old will require at least a couple weeks to heal up. Buddy Carlyle was recalled in the corresponding move, with Carlos Torres likely to continue on as the top long-relief option for New York.(RotoWire, )

News: Matsuzaka will return to the bullpen, as Jon Niese has officially been named Monday's starter, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Impact: Matsuzaka made a few spot starts while Niese was on the disabled list, but most of his work has been in relief this season.
