Justin Masterson worth a gamble for NL-only owners
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/30/14) Justin Masterson's move from the Indians to the Cardinals by way of Wednesday's trade isn't likely to do much for his Fantasy value on its own. He will inherit a better pitcher's park, but that shouldn't impact the 29-year-old sinkerballer much.

Masterson also moves to the more pitcher-friendly league, but that effect will likely be neutralized by getting a new team that is far less likely to offer run support. The Cardinals rank second-to-last in runs scored this season, while the Indians currently rank sixth.

The trade itself does nothing to make Masterson more desirable to owners in mixed leagues, though he is still worth stashing at least in deeper formats in the event that he rediscovers his early-season form. While Masterson has only shown brief flashes of the potential he showed last season, he had been decent through his first eight starts of 2014, going 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. A mediocre WHIP is pretty much a given with Masterson, but as long as it's not awful, he can be worth starting. Even during the awful weeks leading up to his disabled list stint, Masterson was getting strikeouts, and with a high ground ball rate, he offers the promise of a low ERA.

In the 11 starts prior to his DL trip, Masterson walked 36 batters in 49 innings. If those control issues were at all related to his knee injury, the Cardinals -- and Fantasy owners -- could enjoy a version of Masterson that is more like what we saw earlier this year or maybe even last year, assuming he is healthier now.

For that reason, he is worth a bid or waiver pickup in NL-only leagues. Masterson offers enough downside that you don't want to clean out your FAAB account to get him. In the event that Jon Lester or John Lackey crosses over to the senior circuit, you want to preserve most of your cash. Still, Masterson is worth a $5-to-$10 bid in a $100 FAAB league in the hopes that he turns his season around.

Justin Masterson to make St. Louis debut on Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/14) Just-acquired right-hander Justin Masterson is set to make his first start with the Cardinals on Saturday against Milwaukee.

Masterson, who is on the disabled list with a knee issue, has struggled in his rehab stint with Triple-A Buffalo. He gave up seven earned runs in 11 2/3 innings with eight walks. His decreased velocity this season has been a concern.

Cardinals acquire Justin Masterson from Indians
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/14) The Cardinals have acquired pitcher Justin Masterson from the Indians Wednesday, according baseball analyst Peter Gammons.

Masterson has struggled to the tune of a 5.51 ERA in 98 innings for the Indians this season, and is currently sidelined by a knee injury. He was expected to return from the disabled list Friday for the Indians, and will likely slot into the Cardinals rotation at some point in the coming days.

Masterson had a 3.45 ERA last season, but has struggled badly with his control in 2014. He already has walked 56 batters in 98 innings, after walking 76 a year ago in 193 innings. 

Report: Indians willing to listen to offers for Justin Masterson
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Justin Masterson scheduled to return Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
