Season recap: Masterson was the Indians ace for the majority of the 2013 season, going 14-10 with a 3.45 ERA in 29 starts. He was limited towards the end of the season, however, by an oblique injury, and it looks like the Indians will use him in more of a bullpen role for the playoffs; he made four relief appearances un the final month of the year.
Red Sox ties: Masterson was drafted by the Red Sox in the second round in 2006 and was regarded as one of their top pitching prospects during his years in the Red Sox farm system. He saw action mostly as a reliever during his time with the big club from 2008-09, pitching in 67 games over that span, but did start 15 games for the Sox as well. Masterson was traded to the Indians in 2009 as a part of the trade that brought Victor Martinez to Boston.
