Cardinals mulling SP options for Thursday's game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny didn't commit to Justin Masterson making his next start Thursday against the Brewers. In fact, he hinted Marco Gonzales and Tyler Lyons could be the leading candidates to start Thursday, per MLB.com.

"(Marco is) a possibility. Tyler (is) a possibility. Justin's a possibility. We'll see," Matheny said. "We've talked a lot about this stuff. It just hasn't been talked about with everybody else, and this isn't the time or place to start making those statements. We just want to put the guy out there that's going to give us the best chance to win. It's going to be how it matches up with other teams and how they look. We'll be willing to make that statement soon, just not right now."

Justin Masterson rocked by Cubs as struggles continue
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Slumping Cardinals pitcher Justin Masterson made some mechanical adjustments in the time since his last start, but they did not appear to do much, as he struggled yet again in a 5-1 loss to the Cubs Saturday.

The Cubs got to Masterson in the second inning for one run, but things came apart in the fourth inning. Masterson was tagged for a pair of solo home runs in the fourth, followed by one in the fifth before he was listed, after allowing five runs on six hits and a walk in 4 1/3 innings. He struck out five batters on 82 pitches in the loss.

The Cardinals acquired Masterson in July with the intention of making him a reclamation project, but that has not worked out so far. He has a 7.90 ERA in six starts since joining the Cardinals, and his rotation spot no longer appears assured. His next start is currently scheduled for Thursday in Milwaukee.

Searching for answers, Justin Masterson to pitch out of stretch
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Justin Masterson is looking for a solution to his ongoing woes, and he told the St. Louis Dispatch his next start will feature a drastic change.

After trying it out during a bullpen session Wednesday, Masterson told reporters he will pitch exclusively out of the stretch in his start against the Cubs. The decision comes after Masterson has allowed 19 runs in his first 23 innings since the Cardinals acquired him, and the hope is that simplifying his deliver will lead to better results.

"For the most part, I was pitching out of the windup, and things would get better out of the stretch at times," Masterson said. "So we simplified it. I went only out of the stretch (in the bullpen). Less moving parts. You don't have to worry about step back, turn around, ready to throw."

Masterson feels like he can pitch out of the stretch without sacrificing velocity or overall effectiveness. He has struggled mightily with out of the stretch this season, however, allowing a .312/.414/.455 line with runners on base.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Justin Masterson took a loss Sunday, giving up five earned runs on six hits and two walks in just three innings while striking out three in his team's 7-1 defeat against the Phillies.

Masterson (6-8) didn't toss one scoreless frame before being removed from the game, and he's now surrendered at least four earned runs in four of his first five starts with his new team. He owns a 5.88 ERA and 110:66 K:BB ratio in 121 innings. Masterson is scheduled to face the Cubs Saturday.
