The Mets announced on Saturday that Daisuke Matsuzaka will get the start on Wednesday in Chicago.
Matsuzaka, who made a spot start last Sunday pitching six innings in a win over the Diamondbacks, will replace Rafael Montero in the rotation. Montero was sent down to Las Vegas after giving up seven hits and four runs, three earned, in 3 2/3 innings against the Phillies on Friday. Buddy Carlyle, the 36-year old veteran reliever, will be added to the bullpen in place of Montero.
Matuzaka is 2-0 with a 2.54 ERA in 16 appearances, one start, for the Mets in 2014.
