Indians | Justin Masterson makes adjustments, velocity suffers

Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson thinks some mechanical adjustments he's made recently with pitching coach Mickey Callaway are responsible for his decreased velocity early in the year. "It's not the 95 or 96 (mph) like I'd like it to be yet," Masterson said. "Hopefully that's what we're working on. And then we made an adjustment. We were flying open quite a bit the last couple outings. My arm feels great. The movement is great. The slider is great. It's more we were kind of flying, so now going into (Friday), we did a little bit better of staying behind it. Masterson said he expects his velocity to increase with more time.
