Analysis: Masterson, who is in the final year of his contract, was dealt for outfielder James Ramsey, said the person who spoke Wednesday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams have not commented. Masterson, who is on the disabled list, has been a disappointment for the Indians this season. He began the year as Cleveland's No. 1 starter but has underperformed after turning down a contract extension from the club in spring training.
July 8 12:55 PM PT1:55 PM MT2:55 PM CT3:55 PM ET15:55 ET19:55 GMT3:55 12:55 PM MST2:55 PM EST3:25 PM VEN23:55 UAE2:55 PM CT-Masterson is slated to make his St. Louis debut Saturday.

Analysis: Masterson threw 7 1-3 innings but was charged with six runs - five earned - and seven hits. He owns a 4.84 ERA in six starts but a 3.90 FIP suggests that number may come down soon.

Analysis: Masterson remained winless through five starts. The staff's ace, who turned down a contract extension during spring training, allowed two earned runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. "I'll take as many no-decisions as come as long as we're winning," he said. His fantasy owners no doubt beg to differ.
