Latest Update Justin Masterson (knee) not crisp in rehab start at Triple-A Mon Jul, 21, 08:49 PM
Can be overpowering at times, and his drop-down-to-the-side arm angle can be really difficult to pick up for right-handed batters. Has strikeout strikeout ability.
Flaws: : Must work on harnessing his pitches better, because at times he loses command and release point. Also needs to reduce his number of free passes.
Despite the success, the Indians will likely want Masterson to get another rehab start in this week before activating him. His ETA is currently July 30th.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
That will likely be Masterson's last rehab start. Look for him to join the rotation sometime next week. He is a player I want nothing to do with in the fantasy leagues and will let someone else pick him and start him. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
This successful start puts Masterson on track to come off the DL on Friday and pitch during Cleveland's upcoming series against the Royals. Masterson faced the Royals back in April allowing two earned runs over 6.1 innings pitched enroute to a no decision. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
That start would be against the Royals on Friday. It is hard to trust Masterson, who has really struggled this season by posting a 5.51 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 98 innings pitched this season.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
