Goodyear, AZ - Indians manager Terry Francona made it official on Tuesday, naming Justin Masterson his opening day starter. It will be the second straight year that Masterson had taken the mound to open the season for the Tribe.
The Indians will open the season on Tuesday, April 2nd, in Toronto.
Masterson is clearly one of the keys to the 2013 season. If he can bounce back from a 9-15 season in 2012, it will set the tone for the rest of the rotation.
