Masterson, Indians agree to 1-year deal

BY Connor Kiesel • February 18, 2014

Pitcher Justin Masterson and the Cleveland Indians will avoid arbitration.

The two sides have come to an agreement on a 1-year deal, the team said.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman is reporting a salary figure on the deal.

Masterson's arbitration hearing was scheduled for Thursday.

The Indians have won arbitration cases against Vinnie Pestano and Josh Tomlin this offseason.
