Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka has signed a one-year deal with the Saitama Seibu Lions in the Pacific League of Japanese Nippon Professional Baseball, according to the Japan Times.

"I am grateful that you offered me a new contract," Matsuzaka said of the Japan Times. "I'll win next year at the MetLife Dome (Seibu's home stadium) and pay back the club and the fans."
Matsuzaka began his professional baseball career with the Lions in 1999, playing seven seasons for Seibu before joining the Red Sox in December 2006 on a six-year contract worth $ 52 million.
Boston also paid a whopping $ 51.1 million for Matsuzaka's bidding rights. "Dice-K" was a solid starter for Boston - he posted over 200 innings to help the club win a World Series title in 2007 and posted an ERA of 4.52 in six seasons - but he got his massive Hype never quite does it justice.
However, Matsuzaka's baseball career is still going strong nearly a decade after he left the Red Sox in 2012. After two years with the New York Mets, he returned to Japan in 2014 and has been there ever since. During an all-star campaign in 2018, he received the NPB's "Best Comeback Prize".
Matsuzaka joins Manny Ramirez among the 2007 Red Sox alumni who, notably, are still playing. Ramirez signed a deal with the Australian Baseball League earlier this year.
