The Cleveland Indians have signed former Red Sox starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka to a minor league deal, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Matsuzaka will be reunited with his former manager, Terry Francona. He has an invitation to spring training, and he will make $1.5 million if he makes the Opening Day roster and another $4 million if he hits all of his incentives.

Matsuzaka had a 4.52 ERA in six years in Boston after signing a $52 million contract. He made just 18 starts in the last two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He posted an 8.28 ERA in 11 starts in 2012.
