Contract stalemate doesn’t slow Masterson, Indians
Question of the Day
Masterson’s spring training scoreless streak was snapped after 14 2-3 innings, with both runs against him scoring on wild pitches. While he doubled his walks total to four, Masterson struck out six and allowed five hits in his next-to-last start before opening day.
General manager Chris Antonetti said Friday that talks have been tabled after Masterson rejected the team’s “very competitive” offer.
A smiling, upbeat Masterson said he hugged Antonetti when they met Friday morning, and wouldn’t rule out a deal before he hits free agency next winter.
“So even though it didn’t happen right now, I’m not overly disappointed,” Masterson said.
Rockies opening day starter Jorge De La Rosa was knocked around for five runs and nine hits in three innings. The Indians batted around in a four-run third. Elliott Johnson had two RBI singles off De La Rosa, who walked two and threw more than 70 pitches.
“Everything was bad today,” he said.
Colorado setup man Rex Brothers also struggled, giving up two hits, two walks and four runs in the sixth.
Indians: Masterson said he “didn’t have the best fluidity” with his delivery, but was happy with how he worked through it.
“That’s where you learn a lot,” he said.
“It didn’t seem like they were on the same page early on,” manager Walt Weiss said.
Indians: Backup catcher Matt Treanor will be sidelined two to three weeks with a strained left hamstring sustained Wednesday. … Outfielder Nyjer Morgan (calf) had a three-run double in his first game since March 12.
