Losers in seven of their last 10 games, the fading Indians are shopping Opening Day starter Justin Masterston, reports Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com.
According to Knobler, the Red Sox had scouts on hand to watch their former pitcher Saturday in Minnesota, where the 27-year-old righty allowed eight runs and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings. The Rangers, Cardinals and Orioles also could be interested.
Masterson, who appeared in a total of 67 games for the Sox in 2008 and 2009, is 7-9 with a 4.49 ERA this season.
