Daisuke Matsuzaka, aka Dice-K, pitched two scoreless innings and seven Cleveland Indians pitchers combined on a one-hitter, leading to a 3-0 split-squad win over the Cincinnati Reds at Goodyear, Arizona.

The Indians are taking a gamble on the right-handed Matsuzaka, who had arm problems the last few seasons with the Boston Red Sox.

The Japanese fireballer had Tommy John sugery in 2011 which led to him only getting 11 starts in 2012.

The bright spot for the Reds were Sam LeCure and Manny Parra who each threw two scoreless innings on Sunday.

The Dayton Dragons have a roster move to announce.

Left-handed pitcher Tanner Robles has been promoted to Dayton from the Arizona League Reds (Goodyear).

The Dragons are now at the Midwest League limit of 25 players.

Robles, who is the Dragons scheduled starting pitcher on Friday vs. Fort Wayne, has spent most of this season in Dayton, going 3-7 with a 7.16 earned run average in 13 starts. He pitched in three games (two starts) with the AZL Reds, going 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA.

In his last start on July 20, he threw six shutout innings, striking out nine and walking only two while giving up just two hits.

The Dragons second half record of 22-8 is the best in the half among the 60 full-season Single-A teams in Minor League Baseball.

The Cincinnati Reds blasted the Kansas City Royals on Monday in Cactus League action, 14-5. But the real story was the spring training debut of Cincinnati’s Big Cuban lefty, Aroldis Chapman.

The 6-4 Chapman, three at least two pitches that were clocked at 100 mph, according to scouts who were clocking him, as he struck out three over two scoreless innings in a game at Goodyear, Arizona.

The 22-year-old relieved Bronson Arroyo to start the third inning. He allowed one hit- a single to fellow countryman Brayan Pena and a walk. Throwing 26 pitches, 15 were strikes, as his control improved after a wild beginning. “I’ll take 100 mph with command”, said Reds manager Dusty Baker.

The Buzz surrounding Chapman seems to be legitimate so far. The Reds signed him to a $30-million contract in the offseason’s most surprising deal from a team that usually stays away from big contract signings.

Not to be outdone by the buzz over Chapman’s debut the Reds offense, came alive and had several stars. Drew Stubbs got the scoring underway with a 2-run homer in the 3rd inning to put the Reds up 2-0. Johnny Gomes clubbed a 3-run homer in the 5th inning and went 2-4; Scott Rolen and Jay Bruce each went 2-3 and Chris Dickerson went 2-3 with 2 RBI’s.
