Cleveland Indians Trade Justin Masterson to St. Louis Cardinals

The Cleveland Indians have traded Justin Masterson to the St. Louis Cardinals for an OF prospect. Masterson is currently on the disabled list, hasn't pitched since July 7th, and has not pitched more than 4 innings pitched June 19th.  Masterson won a career high 14 games last season, his 3rd straight double digit win season.  With the MLB trade deadline tomorrow, it appears as though the St. Louis Cardinals will not be in the running for Boston Red Sox Jon Lester or Tampa Bay Rays David Price.
