No deal for Dice-K with Brewers

My friends on the Norichika Aoki beat tell me that reports out of Japan suggest the Brewers were poised to sign right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka, who was granted his release Tuesday by the Indians. Not so, said Brewers general manager Doug Melvin.

While it’s true that agent Scott Boras reached out to the Brewers, “I told Boras I didn’t have a spot for him,” Melvin said. “We already have six starters for September.”

The Brewers have Kyle Lohse, Yovani Gallardo and Wily Peralta entrenched in the rotation and will use the remaining weeks of the season to evaluate right-hander Marco Estrada and left-hander Tom Gorzelanny. A sixth starter, right-hander Johnny Hellweg, will join the club in September, and the Brewers are planning to employ a six-man rotation while finishing the season with 20 games in as many days.

Matsusaka, 32, who wants to pitch in the Major Leagues again, simply isn’t a fit, Melvin said.
