The Cleveland Indians re-signed SP Daisuke Matsuzaka and RP Matt Capps to minor league deals Tuesday, March 26, after both were released from their previous deals. Both will likely be reassigned to Triple-A Columbus this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: This was merely a way for Cleveland to avoid paying both pitchers $100,000. Neither should be considered fantasy-relevant unless they are recalled, but even then, they'll probably be relegated to the deepest of AL-only leagues.
