Matsuzaka placed on trade waivers

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Nick Cafardo reports that Daisuke Matsuzaka was placed on trade waivers by the Red Sox.

Teams have until Aug. 31 to set their playoff rosters, so if Matsuzaka is going to get traded it would have to be soon. Given his solid performance on Monday, perhaps there is a shot.

Matsuzaka does have full no-trade rights as part of his contract.

Quick, somebody text Magic Johnson.
