News: Masterson (knee) will be activated to start Friday's game against the Rangers, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. Impact: Masterson was originally scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Friday after a successful Tuesday bullpen session, although he wasn't necessarily happy about that course of action. It appears the Indians have since had a change of heart, however, as manager Terry Francona confirmed that the right-hander will take the hill Friday. Masterson hasn't pitched for the Tribe since July 7 and owned a less-than-spectacular 5.51 ERA before landing on the DL. If Masterson's available, fantasy owners may want to take a wait-and-see approach before rushing to the waiver wire, as there's always the slight risk of another poor outing.(RotoWire, )

News: Masterson (knee) tossed a bullpen session Tuesday and hopes to return after one more rehab start Friday, MLB.com reports. Impact: Maasterson wasn't thrilled with having to make one more rehab start, so he's fully expected to be given the green light to return after his next outing Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Masterson (knee) will require another rehab start Friday at Triple-A Columbus, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Impact: The Indians were toying with the idea of activating Masterson from the DL to start for the big club that day, but the team will give Zach McAllister the opportunity to stick around in the rotation a little longer. Masterson was solid in his first rehab outing Sunday at Triple-A, covering five innings and allowing two runs while striking out six.(RotoWire, )

News: Masterson (knee) will make a rehab start at Triple-A on Sunday and could rejoin the Indians for a start Friday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Impact: Masterson's been progressing well since coming down with the knee issues in early July and should be able to slide back into the rotation Friday if things go well Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Masterson (knee) will throw from a mound Thursday and is scheduled to make a rehab start for Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. Impact: Masterson is eligible to come off the disabled list July 23, but under this current timetable, he wouldn't return until next weekend's serious against the Royals. He hasn't taken the hill for the Tribe since July 7 due to knee inflammation, but it looks as if he'll rejoin the rotation before the end of the month, provided his rehab goes as planned. The Indians rotation is a bit short-handed at the moment, so the return of the 29-year-old righty will surely be welcomed.(RotoWire, )

News: Masterson (knee) could rejoin the Indians as soon as he is eligible to return from the DL on July 23, MLB.com reports. Impact: Masterson tossed another bullpen session Sunday and continues to progress well. He's a certain sit for the upcoming week but might be a possibility the following week depending on how his rehab continues.(RotoWire, )

News: The Cleveland Indians have placed pitcher Justin Masterson on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right knee Tuesday. Impact: Masterson, the team's opening day starter, is 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA. The right-hander allowed five runs and six hits in two-plus innings Monday against the New York Yankees, and was pulled without retiring a batter in the third. He walked three, hit a batter and rarely topped 90 mph in his 54 pitches, throwing only 24 strikes.(STATS, 3:55pm)
