Matsuzaka struggled mightily after returning from Tommy John surgery in 2012 and is looking to re-establish his value, but it sounds like he'll have to fight for an Opening Day roster spot.Sounds low-risk. He hasn't pitched more than 150 innings since 2010, but is still only 32. I'm doubtful he can show enough to push Bauer or Carrasco for the last rotation spot, but hey.....maybe he has his "gyroball" back.

I think they will know within a short timeframe if he has anything left in the tank, and the same is probably true for Kazmir.I can't completely explain it, but I actually am pretty optimistic about Kazmir.

Bring in Dice-K and Carl Pavano. That's 7 SP's competeing for the #4 and #5 slot in the rotation. See which 2 thrive the most in Spring Training, and go from there.
