Justin Masterson Newsbeat

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Red Sox worried Justin Masterson may be hurting after he’s rocked - Boston Red Sox Blog - ESPN

Masterson has looked brutal. He’s the first guy to be replaced in the rotation.

“The last two times out for Justin have not been anywhere close to what he’s shown this year—set aside prior to the start of 2015,” Farrell said. “Clearly, he’s not right. Whether that’s physical, whether that’s delivery-wise, the ball is not coming out of his hand as he’s shown the better part of the year. We’ve got to gather information, we’ve got to check on him in the morning, get a full workup, get a better assessment of where things are.”

Red Sox starter Justin Masterson continues to make strides - The Boston Globe

For the Red Sox rotation plan to work, their number five starter has to pitch like a number three. He doesn’t have to dominate he just needs to consistently keep them in games. Of the Red Sox starters, Masterson is the guy I’m most worried about.

Red Sox To Sign Justin Masterson

“Our pitchers are so mediocre. And we have so few of them!”

The Red Sox have agreed to sign righty Justin Masterson, ESPN.com’s Buster Olney reports on Twitter. The deal is for approximately $9MM, Bob Nightengale of USA Today tweets.

Masterson, 29, fell off significantly last year after a three-year run in which he averaged 205 frames and a 3.86 ERA… In 2014, he scuffled to a 5.88 ERA in 128 2/3 innings last year, striking out 8.1 and walking 4.8 batters per nine while dealing with a variety of shoulder, knee, and back issues. Masterson lost nearly three ticks on his average fastball velocity last year, though he managed to carry a typically stellar 58.2% groundball rate.
