Justin Masterson struggles with control during rehab start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson struggled with his control during a rehab start Friday.

Masterson allowed five runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked six during the outing. Masterson loaded the bases prior to leaving the game. All three runs would come around to score, making his line look worse. Masterson is attempting to come back from a knee injury.


Report: Rival teams showing interest in Justin Masterson


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) The Indians have been contacted by rival clubs interested in pitcher Justin Masterson before the July 31 trade deadline, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Masterson has been on the disabled list since July 8 because of right knee soreness. He went 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA in 19 starts before the injury. He will make his second minor-league rehab start Friday at Triple-A Columbus.

"We told him to get after it. We think that would be good for him. Just to get after it, let it fly and see how far he could carry that into the game," manager Terry Francona said.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson began a minor-league rehab assignment Sunday for Triple-A Columbus.

Making his first start since moving to the disabled list on July 8 with a knee injury, the right-hander lasted five innings and allowed two runs on five hits, with two walks and six strikeouts. It remains to be seen how long he'll pitch in the minors before rejoining the Indians.

Justin Masterson completes another light 'pen session


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Indians starting pitcher Justin Masterson completed another light bullpen session Friday, as he continues to work his way back from a knee injury, MLB.com reports.

Zach McAllister, Danny Salazar candidates to start Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister and Danny Salazar are the two candidates to replace the injured Justin Masterson in the rotation starting Saturday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

McAllister posted a 5.89 ERA and 43:19 K:BB ratio in 10 starts in April and May before going on the disabled list with a back injury. He was activated in mid-June but had his first scheduled start rained out before being sent to Triple-A Columbus, where he's 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA and 34:7 K:BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings over six starts, which includes his rehab assignment.

Salazar burned bright during the second half of 2013 but struggled early this season, going 1-4 with a 5.53 ERA and 47:17 K:BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings over eight starts before being sent down to Columbus. He's 3-5 with a medicore 4.93 ERA and an excellent 53:17 K:BB ratio in 42 innings over eight Triple-A starts, but he's looked better in recent outings.


Zach McAllister, Danny Salazar candidates for Saturday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Zach McAllister and Danny Salazar are candidates to start for the Indians on Saturday as a replacement for the shelved Justin Masterson.

Both have performed well recently at Triple-A Columbus after opening the year in the Cleveland rotation. McAllister is 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA after working out mechanical issues. But scouting director John Mirabelli reported after watching Salazar's last start that it looked like the promising 2013 version, the Cleveland Plain Dealer has reported.


Justin Masterson shelved after latest pounding.


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Embattled Indians right-hander Justin Masterson has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a knee ailment one day after another disastrous start.

Masterson, who has had an outing pushed back due to a sore knee, yielded five earned runs before getting knocked out in the third inning of his Tuesday night start against the Yankees. He has given up 13 runs on 20 hits in his last nine innings pitched. His ERA has soared to 5.51.


Justin Masterson records just six outs Monday vs. Yankees


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson struggled in another abbreviated start Monday, giving up five earned runs on six hits and three walks in two-plus innings while striking out one in his team's 5-3 loss to the Yankees.

Masterson (4-6) has pitched more than four innings just once in his previous five starts, surrendering five runs three times during that stretch. He's walked three or more batters in each of his last five outings as well. Masterson owns a 5.51 ERA and 93:56 K:BB ratio in 98 innings. He's scheduled to face the White Sox Saturday.


Manager: Justin Masterson problems matter of command


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Terry Francona is blaming command rather than any physical problem for the struggles of one-time Indians ace Justin Masterson.

The right-hander lasted just three innings Tuesday night despite seven strikeouts against the Dodgers. That start had been pushed back two days so he could overcome knee soreness. Masterson has given up 16 runs in his last 21 2/3 innings covering five starts as his ERA has climbed to 5.16.

"I think he actually feels OK," Francona told MLB.com. "I think it's some command that he's going to have to fight through. I think he physically feels pretty good. ... I think he's open to working with [pitching coach Mickey Callaway) a lot.

"...There's times right now where he's throwing it and hoping it'll have some natural movement that'll get him out of a jam, as opposed to commanding. I think some of that is confidence. Some of that is repeating. Because, when he gets on a roll, we've all seen [how good he can be]."

Masterson can be quite good, it seems, in alternate years since 2010. His current ERA, however, would be the highest of his career, not a good sign considering this is his free agent year.


Justin Masterson chased after three innings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Indians starter Justin Masterson lasted just three innings in his return to the rotation Tuesday, in a 10-3 win over the Dodgers.

Masterson got plenty of support, but tossed 85 pitches in three innings before he was lifted, ineligible for a win. He was charged with three runs on seven hits and three walks in his three innings of work, though he also struck out seven in the no-decision.

Masterson remains winless in his last four trips to the mound, giving him a 4-5 record through 18 starts. He carries a 5.16 ERA into his next start, set for Monday against the Yankees.  


Justin Masterson set to take the mound Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson will make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Dodgers, after having his last start pushed back to knee trouble. He is in the starting lineup after avoiding setbacks with his knee over the last few days. 

Justin Masterson on track for Tuesday after Saturday bullpen


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson "looked good and felt fine" while throwing a bullpen session Saturday, and he remains on track to start Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

Masterson was initially scheduled to start Sunday but had his start pushed back due to issues with his right knee. He owns a 4-5 record, 5.03 ERA and 85:50 K:BB ratio in 93 innings.


T.J. House to start Sunday; Justin Masterson set for Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Indians pitcher T.J. House will start Sunday against the Mariners, according to a report from The Plain Dealer Friday.

House is set to start in Justin Masterson's spot in the rotation Sunday, with Masterson aiming to pitch Tuesday against the Dodgers. Masterson will throw a bullpen session to test his knee before the start. House might only get the one start, if Masterson's knee checks out OK.

House appeared in six games for the Indians earlier in the season, five of them starts. He had a 4.88 ERA in 27 2/3 innings. 


Knee soreness cited for Justin Masterson struggles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Indians sidearming right-hander Justin Masterson is off-again in 2014 in his propensity for trading on-again, off-again seasons. Soreness in his right knee, which has been plaguing him since the second start of the season, could be used as a legitimate excuse.

The ailment will prevent Masterson from making his scheduled start Sunday in Seattle. It has also prevented him from gaining any semblance of consistency this season, as his 5.03 ERA (highest among any Cleveland starter) can attest. His velocity has dropped several miles per hour this year. Masterson was asked if the knee soreness has been responsible for that.

"I don't know," he replied to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "It's just been a little nagging. Maybe it's taken (away) a little of the power and consistency."

Masterson has not reached the fifth inning in two of his last three starts.


Justin Masterson has start pushed back two days


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson will have his next start pushed back two days due to a right knee issue, FOXSportsArizona.com reports.

Masterson was initially set to start Sunday against the Mariners, but now he'll be looking at a July 1 start against the Dodgers. The Indians have yet to name a replacement starter for Sunday's game.


Justin Masterson bailed out in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Indians starter Justin Masterson struggled yet again Tuesday, though the offense and bullpen helped bail him out as the game went into extra innings.

Masterson lasted just four innings in the game, as he struggled with his control, throwing just 45 of his 91 pitches for strikes. He walked four batters and struck out six, while allowing five runs on seven hits in his four innings of works en route to a no-decision.

Despite plenty of early help, Masterson was gone from the game long before it was decided, as it went into extras. He remains winless over his last three outings, and is 4-5 with a 5.03 ERA overall. His next start is set for Sunday in Seattle.  


Justin Masterson bounces back with strong effort Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Up-and-down Indians right-hander Justin Masterson was up Thursday against the visiting Angels, but came away with a no-decision.

Masterson worked out of several jams and gave up just one run in seven innings with three walks and five strikeouts. Not bad considering he gave up five runs in two innings with four walks in his last outing.

The sidearmer will start again Tuesday in a series opener against host Arizona.


Rain pushes Justin Masterson back to Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) The Indians game against the Angels Wednesday was postponed due to rain, meaning Justin Masterson's start will have to be pushed back. He will be moved back just one day, starting the series finale Thursday, though it is not yet known how the rest of the rotation will shape up. 

Justin Masterson gets rocked in loss to Red Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson endured a rough outing on Friday against the Red Sox, lasting only two innings in a 10-3 defeat. The right-hander was shelled for five runs on three hits and four walks with no strikeouts, dropping to 4-5 on the year.

Over his last two starts covering 7 2/3 innings, Masterson has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 5.05 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP through 14 starts (94 1/3 innings). He will look to get back on track Wednesday at home against the Angels.

Justin Masterson picks up second straight win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson fell one out shy of a quality start on Sunday, but managed to pick up the win against the Rangers in Arlington. The right-hander permitted two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings of a 3-2 win.

Over his last three starts covering 15 2/3 innings, Masterson has allowed only three earned runs. He owns a 4.61 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP through 14 starts (80 innings). He will seek his third consecutive victory Friday at Boston.

Justin Masterson Ks 10 in dominant win over Red Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson twirled a gem on Monday against the Red Sox, scattering three hits in seven scoreless innings to improve to 3-4 on the season.

Masterson struck out 10 and walked four, improving his ERA to 5.21 to 4.72. Of his 105 pitches, 67 were strikes. At one point he threw 25 straight strikes and retried eight in a row before issuing a ball and a single to David Ortiz in the sixth inning.

Following the 3-2 home win, Masterson will look to keep things rolling Sunday at Texas.

Justin Masterson tosses three innings in rain-shortened start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Indians pitcher Justin Masterson had his start cut short by a rain delay Tuesday, finishing with one earned run allowed on four hits and two walks in three innings and three strikeouts in his team's 2-1 loss to the White Sox.

Masterson (2-4) threw just 65 pitches before exiting. He appeared on his way to a redemptive performance after giving up 17 earned runs in his previous three starts combined, but the weather had other ideas. Masterson owns a 5.21 ERA and 58:33 K:BB ratio in 67 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Red Sox Monday.
