Masterson Heads To The D.L.

Portland’s Justin Masterson was one of the minors hottest pitchers in July. His August has not gone as well, and it just got a little worse as the Sea Dogs announced that the righthander is headed to the disabled list with a calf strain.

Masterson didn’t allow a run until his third Double-A start, and he followed that up with a pair of 10 strikeout starts. But he has allowed 15 runs in his last two starts (10 innings) before heading to the disabled list.
