Player Notes
Justin Masterson unraveled in the fourth inning of Friday's loss to the Astros, allowing all five runs on his line before exiting with two outs in the frame.

Advice: Masterson was cruising through the first three innings, but the cruise hit a whirlpool in the fourth when Masterson allowed seven hits and five runs in the frame. There was no huge hit, just a parade of singles and doubles. With the debacle, Masterson saw his ERA jump from an already poor 5.58 to an even more questionable 6.14. He's also pitching to a 1.68 WHIP. Given that he just reentered the rotation on June 28, it's likely he'll get at least one more start, but the numbers are discouraging. Said start would come in a high-profile environment, as the Red Sox will be facing the Yankees at Fenway when Masterson's next slated to take the ball.

Fri, Jul 3 Rotoworld
Justin Masterson, making his first start since May 12, held the Rays to one unearned run in five innings en route to a win on Sunday.

Advice: Masterson is taking the rotation spot of Joe Kelly and pitched well enough to warrant that decision, scattering five hits with no walks and six strikeouts. The lone run came across in the fifth, helped in part by a passed ball from catcher Blake Swihart. In eight starts overall this season, Masterson has a 5.58 ERA, a 1.59 WHIP, and a 30/19 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings. He'll start against the Astros at home next weekend.

Sun, Jun 28 Rotoworld
Justin Masterson will start for the Red Sox on Sunday afternoon against the Rays.

Advice: He is taking over for Joe Kelly, who was demoted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday morning. Masterson has an ugly 6.37 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 35 1/3 innings this season for the Red Sox. He is a bad fantasy option.
