Dice-K wants to be down San Diego way

Daisuke Matsuzaka needs a fresh start after injuries held him back through most of his six years with the Red Sox. Whether coincidentally or not, the 32-year-old righty and free agent wants to go about as far from Boston as possible.

Dice-K told Japanese media that he’s fond of the Padres and Petco Park, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. A Scott Boras client, Dice-K also reportedly said that money is not chief among his priorities.

The Red Sox paid Dice-K $51 million in his time with the Sox, and he reached 200 innings as a Major League rookie in 2007, when the Sox won the World Series. He got past 100 innings just twice after that, and went for Tommy John surgery in 2011. But if healthy, he’s shown ability in a tough division: Matsuzaka is 50-37 with a 4.52 ERA in 117 games, all but one of them starts.

“At his age, he’s in good shape and working hard, so he’s really a candidate for a team that wants a guy to come in that may give you a ceiling that you may not expect,” Boras said this offseason. “For a club that’s going to need an arm with potential, he’s a good fit for a lot of teams.”
