Aug. 9 6:45 PM PT7:45 PM MT8:45 PM CT9:45 PM ET21:45 ET1:45 GMT9:45 6:45 PM MST8:45 PM EST9:15 PM VEN5:45 UAE (+1)8:45 PM CT-The Boston Red Sox designated Masterson for assignment after Sunday's 7-2 win over Detroit. The right-hander got out of a sixth-inning jam in relief of Henry Owens, but gave up a home run to Jefry Marte in the seventh.
Analysis: "It was consistent strike-throwing, when you boil it down to it," manager John Farrell said. "He flashed some better arm strength at various points in time this season, but the overall consistency just wasn't there." Masterson is 4-2 with a 5.61 ERA in 18 appearances, including nine starts. Farrell said the Red Sox will use Masterson's roster spot to give innings to younger pitchers.
