Boston Red Sox SP Justin Masterson struck out six batters over five innings for his second win of the season against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, April 20. He allowed a single earned run on three hits and three walks.
Fantasy Tip: In favorable matchups, Masterson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is a nice low-priced target for FantasyScore players. He has shown flashes of excellent strikeout ability and kept his ratios in check in the past, too. However, Fenway Park is a difficult hitting environment, and this was Masterson's first decent start of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Masterson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) struggled mightily in 2014, splitting time between the Cleveland Indians and St. Louis Cardinals. Masterson got off to a good start as he tries to rebound from a season in which he went 7-9 with a 5.88 ERA and a WHIP of 1.63.
