Free Agency: Justin Masterson

Justin Masterson, 29, looks for a place to call home this offseason. The twenty-nine year-old struggled tremendously last season putting up a 5.51 ERA with the Cleveland Indians and a 7.04 ERA with the St. Louis Cardinals. The right-handed pitcher needs to reintroduce his value as a pitcher. For this to be accomplished, he must sign a cheap deal. No team will pursue Masterson for...

Indians Rumors: Justin Masterson back to Cleveland?

LeBron took his talents back to Cleveland and another athlete may soon be doing the same. Paul Hoynes reports that the Cleveland Indians have been considering bringing back pitcher Justin Masterson. Cleveland would most likely bring him back on a one year deal and that deal would work well for both clubs. It would give Masterson a chance to re-establish his value and then go test...

Why I like the Justin Masterson trade

The Indians made their first deadline move and it was a big one.  They sent right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the Cardinals for minor league outfielder James Ramsey in a one for one deal. The Cardinals had been chasing big name pitchers, but in the end decided it was better to not pay the premium and rolled the dice on Masterson. Initial reaction was very mixed...

Indians “very willing” to trade Justin Masterson

The Cleveland Indians’ season isn’t going according to plan I wouldn’t say. At the same time when they failed to reach a deal with Masterson and pay him as much money as he wanted to be paid, maybe they knew what they were doing. Masterson has struggled mightily this season – his last under contract with the Indians. Masterson was thought to be seeking $17 million per season...
