Dice-K joins Red Sox prior to Mets start
Matsuzaka (0-1) went on the disabled list April 15 with a mild strain of his right shoulder one day after his ERA jumped to 12.79 when he allowed five runs in one inning in a 6-5 loss at Oakland. In his other start this year, he gave up four runs in 5 1/3 innings in a 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay.
In eight relief outings, Jones was 0-0 with an 8.00 ERA.
