Latest Update Justin Masterson is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list Friday Sun Jul, 27, 11:56 AM
Can be masterful at times, and his drop-down-to-the-side arm angle can be really difficult to pick up for right-handed batters. Has strikeout ability. Induces plenty of groundballs.
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 and become more consistent, in general.
Masterson seems to be comfortable with his knee right now and says that he is ready to get back out there. If everything goes well over the next few days, he'll be ready to go this Friday against the Rangers.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
