The Indians released Daisuke Matsuzaka from the contract he signed Feb. 18 this afternoon. Last week the Tribe told Matsuzaka he would not win a berth in the rotation, but he agreed to go to the minors upon receiving a $100,000 retention bonus that bound him to the team until June 1. Otherwise he could have left March 26 and become a free agent.
