Will Sox Look To The Prodigal 'Master-Son'?

According to a report by the Globe's Peter Abraham, the Red Sox may be considering bringing back Justin Masterson—either as a starter or reliever. Masterson was traded to the Indians for Victor Martinez, and the 28-year old has been a serviceable member of the Tribe's rotation ever since. An sub-par 2012 could make him available—although new Cleveland Manager Terry Francona obviously knows his potential. This move might make sense, since the team will likely have to throw eight or ten pitchers against the Spring Training Wall to end up with five on Opening Day.
