Indians Trade Justin Masterson to Cardinals

July 30, 2014 |

The Cleveland Indians have traded right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon according to multiple reports.

Cleveland and Masterson could not agree on a contract extension during spring training and he has had a very subpar 2014 season. He has been on the disabled list since July 8 with right knee inflammation and was supposed to start on Friday evening for Cleveland. Instead, he is dealt to St. Louis, a contender looking to strengthen their starting rotation. Masterson will be a free agent at the end of this season.
