The Red Sox starting rotation is set, but president Larry Lucchino is still disappointed in his team’s failure to bring back Jon Lester.
Dec 12, 2014, 8:20 PM EST
The deal was reported earlier this week and it’s now official.

The past view days were . . . intense. But here is a quick and handy guide to everything that went down.

Your one-stop shop for all of the offseason signings.

The Red Sox add their third starting pitcher in 24 hours.
Dec 10, 2014, 6:20 PM EST
Now that Jon Lester has settled on a team, inking a six-year, $155 million contract late Tuesday night with the Cubs, the focus of the starting pitching market turns to Max Scherzer and James Shields.

Masterson was the Red Sox’s second-round draft pick in 2006.

The AL Central seems to be particularly fond of free agent pitcher Justin Masterson.
Nov 16, 2014, 3:25 PM EST
Justin Masterson had a dreadful 2014, posting a 5.88 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 128 2/3 innings between the Indians and Cardinals, but the free agent right-hander is already drawing a decent amount of interest on the open market as clubs look to the bargain bin for potential reclamation projects.
Nov 13, 2014, 10:25 PM EST
The Indians are considering bringing back Justin Masterson.
Nov 11, 2014, 9:08 PM EST
The Cubs could bolster their pitching staff without signing Max Scherzer or Jon Lester.

Including writeups for the top 63, because we’re not always all about round numbers.

The Cardinals aren’t expected to retain the services of any of the five players headed into free agency once the World Series is over. Fortunately, none of the five are key contributors.
Oct 16, 2014, 1:11 AM EST
Letting Shelby Miller bat in the fourth was baffling, but it wasn’t Matheny’s only bad call in Game 4.
Sep 2, 2014, 10:15 AM EST
Overall this season the impending free agent has a 6.03 ERA in 25 starts for the Indians and Cardinals.
Aug 29, 2014, 9:31 AM EST
Which, in all likelihood, will be his last start for the Cardinals this year.
Aug 25, 2014, 3:15 PM EST
So far at least a change of scenery hasn’t done Justin Masterson any good.
Aug 25, 2014, 5:00 AM EST
The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.
Aug 17, 2014, 1:15 PM EST
As first relayed by MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, the Cardinals have recalled right-hander Carlos Martinez from Triple-A Memphis, optioning lefty reliever Kevin Siegrist in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
Aug 15, 2014, 5:31 PM EST
Shane Robinson over Oscar Taveras?
Aug 7, 2014, 8:55 PM EST
Carlos Carrasco has posted a 2.30 ERA and 39/9 K/BB ratio over 43 innings since moving to the bullpen, but the Indians are giving him another shot in the starting rotation.

A quick recap of a busy Friday around MLB, including the first game of a big weekend series between the Brewers and Cardinals.
Aug 1, 2014, 7:59 PM EST
The Brewers have scratched rookie right-hander Jimmy Nelson from Saturday’s start, but it mostly looks like a convenient excuse to manipulate their rotation this weekend.
Aug 1, 2014, 4:16 PM EST
Carlos Martinez is no longer needed in St. Louis’ rotation following trades for Justin Masterson and John Lackey, but rather than shifting him back to the bullpen the Cardinals have decided to send the 22-year-old right-hander to Triple-A.
