Twins showing interest in free agent Justin Masterson

13 Comments

Justin Masterson had a dreadful 2014, posting a 5.88 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 128 2/3 innings between the Indians and Cardinals, but the free agent right-hander is already drawing a decent amount of interest on the open market as clubs look to the bargain bin for potential reclamation projects.

Add the Twins to the list, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com.

Masterson was terrific in 2013 for Cleveland, finishing that season with a 3.45 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 195 strikeouts in 193 innings. He’s only 29 years old, and maybe he can reinvent himself at Minnesota’s Target Field — a very pitcher-friendly park.
