Player Notes
Justin Masterson was chased after giving up five runs over 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

Advice: Masterson gave up six hits, including three home runs. He now owns a 7.43 ERA with 28 hits and 10 walks allowed in 23 innings over his first five starts since coming over from the Indians. It's hard to imagine the Cardinals will keep him in the rotation much longer.

Justin Masterson plans to pitch exclusively out of the stretch during Saturday's start versus the Cubs.

Advice: The idea is to simplify his mechanics as much as possible. With a 7.43 ERA over five starts with the Cardinals, Masterson is willing to give it a shot. If he doesn't pitch better Saturday, he could be booted from the rotation. "For the most part, I was pitching out of the windup, and things would get better out of the stretch at times," Masterson said. "So we simplified it. I went only out of the stretch (in the bullpen). Less moving parts. You don't have to worry about step back, turn around, ready to throw. We're simplifying, really simplifying."

Justin Masterson was roughed up again Sunday, giving up five runs over three innings in a loss to the Phillies.

Advice: Masterson didn't have much of anything, as he gave up six hits and walked two in his three innings of work. This marks the fourth subpar start in five turns since joining the Cardinals, owning a 7.43 ERA and 1.65 WHIP through 23 innings. With the Cardinals in a playoff hunt and Masterson getting lit up at every turn, it wouldn't be surprising if they started looking elsewhere for starts very soon.
