Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson remains hopeful he and the club can avoid an arbitration hearing and agree to a deal. "It's always good (to negotiate) before the season, at least for me," Masterson said. "But, if nothing were to happen, depending on how this takes place, maybe there's a time for my representation, and (general manager Chris Antonetti) and (assistant general manager Mike Chernoff) to say, 'Let's just take a breather'. I don't necessarily want to talk during the season, but I leave it up to my agent."
