Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson is not on the radar of the New York Yankees as the trade deadline approaches, although they continue to look for starting pitching upgrades. It's a gamble to trade for Masterson, since he has been on the disabled list with an inflamed right knee and will be making his first start back Friday, Aug. 1, a day after the deadline.

Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson (knee) allowed five runs, four hits and six walks over 6 2/3 innings in a minor-league rehab outing for Triple-A Columbus Friday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: The stat line isn't as bad as it looks, as he hit left with the bases loaded and all three runs came in to score. The command issues are what is really striking about the line, as six walks simply will not do. Fantasy owners will want to keep him reserved for his first couple of starts when he returns to the big club, letting him prove his health and show his command is back.
