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 start 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: Masterson (knee) threw his scheduled bullpen session as planned Friday, MLB.com reports. "We're trying to start at the beginning -- almost like spring training. We're trying to build up," manager Terry Francona said. Impact: Masterson still hasn't worked in any of his breaking stuff into the bullpen sessions so far and figures to continue with his regular throwing sessions for the foreseeable future.(RotoWire, )

News: Masterson threw a light bullpen session Wednesday and will do the same every other day until the All-Star break, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. Impact: He didn't throw any breaking balls, just 25 fastballs, and it seems like that will be all he'll do in the short term. If he needs a rehab assignment, it won't come until during or after the All-Star break, and until he starts ramping up his bullpen sessions, game action doesn't seem likely. His 5.51 ERA in 98 innings this season has been catastrophic for fantasy owners, and the only positive to hold on to is his 4.06 FIP, which suggests he could bounce back once fully healthy.(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)
