Indians avoided arbitration with RHP Justin Masterson by agreeing to a one-year, $5.6875 million contract.

It's Masterson's second year of arbitration eligibility. The right-hander fell back in 2012 after a breakout year in 2011, holding a 4.93 ERA over 34 starts. His issues against left-handed batters aren't going away, but Masterson at least should be a durable workhorse for the Tribe.
