The Indians were intrigued by the 32-year-old, who helped the Boston Red Sox win a World Series title in 2007. But since 2008, Matsuzaka has been slowed by elbow issues and he underwent Tommy John surgery two years ago. His velocity was noticeably down at spring training.
D-BACKS 5, REDS 2: In Cincinnati, Paul Goldschmidt set a Diamondbacks record with his third grand slam of the season, and became the first NL player to drive in 100 runs.
Goldschmidt connected in the eighth inning off J.J. Hoover, ending the reliever's streak of 23 scoreless appearances. His 31st homer tied him with Pittsburgh's Pedro Alvarez for the NL lead.
Left-hander Patrick Corbin (13-3) stymied Cincinnati's lefty-dominated lineup, pitching a six-hitter with 10 strikeouts.
DODGERS: Yasiel Puig was benched against the Miami Marlins, and manager Don Mattingly says the one-day move was made because of the rookie's slump.
Puig was late arriving at the ballpark for Monday's game, but Mattingly said the decision to sit him had already been made.
The young outfielder was hitless in his past 11 at-bats and 6-for-35 (.171) over his past nine games, dropping his average to .351.
Puig received a standard fine for his late arrival, Mattingly said.
