Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage is being hailed as the King of Reclamation Projects. He may need to employ all of his regal powers on former Red Sox pitcher Justin Masterson—who inked a minor-league deal with the Bucs. The Red Sox tried bringing back the affable Masterson last season, but he limped to a 5.61 ERA across just 18 appearances. Over his 8-year MLB career, Masterson is 64-74, with a 4.31 ERA. In his full tenure with Boston, he was 13-10 with a 4.26 ERA. We wish Justin the best in Pittsburgh!
