PHILADELPHIA -- Daisuke Matsuzaka, who is scheduled to make a rehab start for Class A St. Lucie on Monday, will not be activated from the disabled list after that appearance.

Terry Collins said Matsuzaka, who is on the DL with right elbow inflammation, will make one or two more rehab starts before being activated.

Officially, that's to stretch him out. But it also appears the Mets have other preferences for the major league roster at the moment.
