BOSTON (CBS) – In what has become a trend over the couple of weeks, the Boston Red Sox placed pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka on waivers, according to a report.

ESPN’s Buster Olney Tweeted Tuesday morning the team placed Matsuzaka on waivers earlier this week. On Monday, Matsuzaka picked up his first win in over a year, allowing just one unearned run over seven innings of work against the Kansas City Royals.

While placing a slew of their players on waivers last week led to a blockbuster trade, Matsuzaka will likely stay put for the next five weeks. The oft-injured right-hander is owed $2 million for the rest of the 2012 season, and will be a free agent this winter.

Now in his sixth season with Boston since coming over from Japan prior to the 2007 season, Matsuzaka is a career 50-33 with a 4.29 ERA in 112 games.

Matsuzaka is 1-3 with a 5.10 ERA in six starts in 2012.
