Cleveland Indians defeat Kansas City Royals, 5-3

Justin Masterson remained winless Wednesday night, but neither he nor his team is complaining. Masterson's quality start laid the foundation for Jason Kipnis's make-good double as the Indians defeated the Royals, 5-3, at chilly Progressive Field. Paid attendance: 9,311. The Indians (10-11) have won two of the first three in a four-game series that concludes Thursday afternoon...

Why is Justin Masterson's velocity down?

Justin Masterson's velocity is down. The reason why, however, remains up in the air. Neither Masterson nor pitching coach Mickey Callaway seem overly concerned by the right-hander's softer tossing. Masterson playfully dodged questions about the drop in velocity with his typical light-hearted banter. "I'm OK," Masterson said. "Do I look OK?" Masterson...

Toronto on tap for Masterson, Indians

After leading the playoff-qualifying Cleveland Indians with 14 victories in 2013, Justin Masterson hasn't done much to help a rotation that has been one of the majors' worst so far this season. Perhaps he'll be able to turn things around against a Toronto Blue Jays team that he's dominated in his Cleveland career. Masterson looks to help the Indians win for only the...

Does Justin Masterson’s performance against the Twins show why the Cleveland Indians didn’t get a deal done with him?

The Cleveland Indians lost 2 out of the 3 games they played against the Minnesota Twins. The Tribe sent their ace, Justin Masterson to the mound in game three and he was rocked for 7 hits and 6 runs in the 3-2/3′s he pitched. Masterson and the Indians were unable to get a long term deal done before the start of the 2014 season. The Indians refused to come to terms with a deal that...

Rotation'€™s struggles continue with uncharacteristic outing by Masterson

Six games into the season, the Cleveland Indians are 3-3, but the rotation is still searching for its first win. Many thought it would have happened on Sunday when staff ace Justin Masterson took the hill to face the Twins in the finale of a weekend series. Instead, the right-hander had his worst outing in nearly two years. In 3 2/3 innings of the 10-7 loss to Minnesota, Masterson...

Masterson set to start Indians' opener

OAKLAND -- After having one of the best springs for a pitcher, Justin Masterson is hoping that carries into the regular season. For the third straight year, the right-hander will take the hill in the Indians' opener. The past two years Masterson's foe has been Toronto. Tonight it is Oakland in an opening series that matches two teams that made the postseason last year. "...

Masterson finished the spring by limiting the Brewers to a run and three hits over 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander also struck out five and walked two. In 24 2/3 innings and six starts, Masterson...

Rumored details of Justin Masterson’s contract proposal to the Indians

Justin Masterson has been pitching very well this Spring so far, but the club still hasn’t worked out a long-term deal with their best pitcher. The debates rage on whether Masterson is a “true number one” starter, but it matters little in a sport where Homer Bailey cashes in big time to the tune of $105 million for six years. It seems it might be even easier than that anyway...
