Player Notes
With Kyle Farnsworth getting the day off, Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched a perfect ninth for his first major league save on Thursday.

Advice: Matsuzaka had no problem maintaining the Mets' three-run lead in the ninth. It was his second ever save, the first coming back in Japan in 2000. He's allowed one run and two hits in 5 1/3 innings since his callup last week.

Mets manager Terry Collins said there's "no question" Daisuke Matsuzaka could close games for the Mets if needed.

Advice: It's not needed at this point, as Kyle Farnsworth appears to be alright, but it's interesting to know his name could be in the conversation should Farnsworth falter. Matsuzaka has been pitching in relief since being recalled on April 16, allowing one run over four innings while striking out six. He's a long way from finishing games for the Mets, but he's at least a name to keep in the back -- the very back -- of your mind.

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Advice: Matsuzaka posted a 2.25 ERA with 12 strikeouts over his first 12 innings at Triple-A. The plan for now is to use him in long relief, but he could get a start if Jenrry Mejia (blister) isn't ready to go the next time out.
