Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Cleveland Indians ace starter Justin Masterson will miss his scheduled Sunday start due to a sore right knee.
Masterson will throw a bullpen session in two days to evaluate the knee that has been bothering him for days. He is 4-5 this season with a 5.03 ERA.
“We’re going to back Justin up a couple of days,” manager Terry Francona said. “His right knee has been bothering him and he’s been pitching through it, but it’s hard for him to generate power.”
Zach McAllister will be added to the rotation in Masterson’s absence, but it’s expected that either T.J. House or Danny Salazar will make Sunday’s start against the Mariners.
