News: Masterson and the Boston Red Sox have agreed to a one-year contract.
Impact: Masterson made 25 starts for Cleveland and St. Louis last season, going a combined 7-9 with a 5.88 ERA. Masterson, an All-Star in 2013, was drafted by the Red Sox in 2006. He went 9-8 with a 3.76 ERA for Boston from 2008-09 before he was traded to the Indians in a deal that brought Victor Martinez to Fenway Park.

News: Masterson agreed to terms with the Red Sox on Thursday, ESPN reports.
Impact: After opening the season as the Indians' ace, Masterson experienced knee issues that landed him on the disabled list. After a deadline deal that sent him to St. Louis, the Cardinals made the call to move him to the bullpen, where he posted a disappointing 3-3 record and 7.04 ERA. It's unclear how the Sox intend to use Masterson, who began his major league career in Boston, but he'll likely be given an opportunity to prove he can return to a starting role.
