Cleveland Indians made right move dealing Justin Masterson

The last time the Indians traded a veteran starting pitcher to the St. Louis Cardinals - Jake Westbrook, July 31, 2010 - the prospect they got back was Corey Kluber. They should be so fortunate this time. The Justin Masterson Era ended in a cloud of choking dust July 30 when the Indians, exhausted and out of ideas on how to fix his broken mechanics, traded the fleeting but ultimately failed No.
