That’s the report from Buster Olney. And That’s two years in a row for Masterson. Another ten or twelve of those and we’ll be arguing about his Hall of Fame case one day.
It’s a signal of some sort of tenure or continuity more than anything else, as Masterson is coming off a meh 2012. But the rotation is the Indians’ weakest link with the starters beyond Masterson being Ubaldo Jimenez, Brett Myers and “field.”
