Description: Cardinals starter Justin Masterson has been sent to the bullpen.
Insight: He looked great on Aug. 13 at Miami (7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K), but has otherwise been even worse with the Cardinals than he was with the Indians. He's gone 2-3 with a 7.90 ERA and a 1.646 WHIP for St. Louis.
 
Cold8/24/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Cardinals starter Justin Masterson has allowed nine runs on 11 hits over eight innings in his last two starts.
Insight: He looked great on Aug. 13 at Miami (7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K) but has otherwise been even worse with the Cardinals than he was with the Indians. He's gone 2-2 with a 7.43 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP in 23 innings with St. Louis.
 
8/13/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: Cardinals starter Justin Masterson had his best game in more than two months Wednesday at Miami.
Insight: In his previous 13 starts, Masterson had posted a 7.74 ERA in 57 innings, but he was sharp Wednesday. He allowed three hits and didn't walk a batter over seven scoreless innings. If he gets his stuff in order the sinkerballer could really go on a roll for the Cardinals, who have a much better infield defense than Cleveland.
 
Cold8/8/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Cardinals starter Justin Masterson walked three and gave up five runs on seven hits (two homers) in two innings Friday at Baltimore.
Insight: In two starts with the Cardinals, Masterson has put 20 men on base and allowed 10 earned runs in eight innings. In his last 13 starts, Masterson has posted a 7.74 ERA in 57 innings. It's time to move on.
 
Cold8/1/2014 5:50:00 PM
Description: Justin Masterson will make his Cardinals debut on Saturday against Milwaukee.
Insight: Masterson was shipped from Cleveland to St. Louis earlier this week. He went 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA and 195 Ks in 193 innings a year ago, but he's 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP in 98 innings this year. His 4.06 FIP suggests he'll improve, and St. Louis' defense should help the ground-ball pitcher. Cleveland ranks last in baseball in UZR this season while the Cardinals rank eighth.
 
Cold7/30/2014 2:46:00 PM
Description: According to Peter Gammons of MLB.com, the Cardinals will acquire Justin Masterson from the Indians for prospect James Ramsey.
Insight: Masterson is on the disabled list with a knee injury, but he is ready to return. He went 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA and 195 Ks in 193 innings a year ago, but he's 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP in 98 innings this year. His 4.06 FIP suggests he'll improve, and St. Louis' defense should help the ground-ball pitcher. Cleveland ranks last in baseball in UZR this season while the Cardinals rank eighth.
 
Cold7/29/2014 9:18:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson (knee) will return from the disabled list Friday against the Rangers, according to mlb.com.
Insight: Masterson went 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA and 195 Ks in 193 innings a year ago, but he's 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP in 98 innings this year. His 4.06 FIP suggests he'll improve, but he hasn't shown any signs of that yet. He's set to be a free agent after the season.
 
Cold7/20/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson (knee) allowed two runs on five hits, struck out six and walked two over five innings in his rehab start for Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.
Insight: Masterson could be ready to rejoin the Indians rotation on Friday at Kansas City. The right-hander went 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA and 195 Ks in 193 innings a year ago, but he's 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP in 98 innings this year. His 4.06 FIP suggests he'll improve, but he hasn't shown any signs of that yet.
 
Cold7/8/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with right knee soreness.
Insight: Masterson has thrown just nine innings in his last three starts and allowed 13 runs on 20 hits with a 14/10 K/BB in that span. The right-hander went 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA and 195 Ks in 193 innings a year ago, but he's 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP in 98 innings this year. His 4.06 FIP suggests he'll improve, but he hasn't shown any signs of that yet.
 
Cold7/7/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson was bombed again Monday against the Yankees. He allowed five runs on six hits in two innings.
Insight: Masterson has thrown just nine innings in his last three starts and allowed 13 runs on 20 hits with a 14/10 K/BB in that span. The right-hander went 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA and 195 Ks in 193 innings a year ago, but he's 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP in 98 innings this year. His 4.06 FIP suggests he'll improve, but he hasn't shown any signs of that yet.
 
6/29/2014 4:06:00 PM
Description: According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Indians right-hander Justin Masterson (knee) has been cleared to start Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Masterson has been dealing with a sore right knee for most of the season and he had his latest start pushed back from Sunday. Masterson has had a disappointing season, regressing from 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA in 2013 to 4-5 and a 5.03 ERA this year. His 3.91 FIP and .328 BABIP suggest he's been unlucky, however, so he could be a buy-low candidate.
 
6/25/2014 8:13:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson will have his next start pushed back. SOURCE: Fox Sports Arizona
Insight: He was supposed to start Sunday against Seattle but now it looks like he'll start Tuesday instead. Masterson (4-5, 5.03 ERA) suffered a minor knee injury during his last outing. The right-hander has allowed five or more runs in two of his last three starts.
 
6/19/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Justin Masterson tossed seven innings and allowed one run on four hits Thursday against the Angels.
Insight: Masterson has pitched better than his 4.75 ERA indicates -- he has a 3.91 FIP but has a 65.7 percent strand rate due to a .385 BABIP with RISP.
 
6/2/2014 9:33:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Justin Masterson bounced back for his third win of the season Monday against Boston.
Insight: Masterson (3-4, 4.72 ERA) loaded the bases in the first but it was smooth sailing after that. He finished with a season-high ten strikeouts over seven scoreless innings. He's now 4-3 in his career versus the Red Sox.
 
Cold5/27/2014 1:51:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson has been ugly of late and could probably be avoided in his matchup with Chris Sale and the White Sox on Tuesday.
Insight: Masterson hasn't been very effective in his last three starts, giving up five runs or more in each outing to raise his ERA from 3.86 to 5.32.
 
5/3/2014 9:19:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson was masterful, yielding just four hits over 7 1/3 innings.
Insight: Masterson hasn't been very effective this season giving up five runs of more in three of his last five outings, but he was definitely on today.
 
4/23/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson has tossed two straight quality starts after giving up 10 earned runs on 14 hits in 8 1/3 innings in his previous two turns.
Insight: Masterson still doesn't have a decision this season. The right-hander allowed three runs (two earned) on eight hits with a 6/2 K/BB in 6 1/3 innings Wednesday against Kansas City and now has a 4.50 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. He should improve once his .346 BABIP comes down, though he'll have to get his 4.18 BB/9 in check as well.
 
4/1/2014 7:54:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Justin Masterson held the Athletics scoreless in seven innings on Opening Day Monday night.
Insight: Masterson gave up four hits, walked one and struck out four. The right-hander had his best season in 2013, going 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and 195 strikeouts in 193 innings. He had a 7.1 K/9 in his first five seasons, but he turned his slider into a dominant out pitch last year.
 
10/2/2013 6:36:00 PM
Description: Cleveland manager Terry Francona indicated that righthander Justin Masterson may be used as the team's closer during the postseason. SOURCE: Indians.com
Insight: Masterson was the team's best starter for much of the season but an oblique injury has forced him to take on a lighter workload. He certainly has the velocity to pull it off and Masterson does have experience as a reliever (62 lifetime appearances out of the bullpen). Former closer Chris Perez did make the Indians' postseason roster but it's clear that Francona doesn't trust him as a ninth inning option any longer.
 
9/24/2013 9:48:00 PM
Description: Indians pitcher Justin Masterson (oblique) has been cleared to return as a reliever, according to MLB.com.
Insight: Masterson (14-10, 3.52 ERA) was removed from his start on Sept. 2 due to a strained left oblique and hasn't pitched since. Fantasy owners hoping he would make one more start this season can drop him.
