NEW YORK (AP) -- The Mets are bringing up pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka to replace John Lannan on their big league roster.

Matsuzaka's contract was selected Wednesday from Las Vegas, and New York sent Lannan outright to the Triple-A team.

Matsuzaka, a 33-year-old right-hander, was 3-3 with a 4.42 ERA in seven starts for the Mets last year and 0-0 with a 2.25 ERA in two starts for Las Vegas this year.

Lannan, a 32-year-old left-hander, was 1-0 with a 15.25 ERA in five relief appearances for the Mets this year. He has the choice to refuse the outright assignment and elect to become a free agent.
