Justin Masterson plans to pitch exclusively out of the stretch during Saturday's start versus the Cubs.
The idea is to simplify his mechanics as much as possible. With a 7.43 ERA over five starts with the Cardinals, Masterson is willing to give it a shot. If he doesn't pitch better Saturday, he could be booted from the rotation. "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. We’re simplifying, really simplifying." Aug 29 - 9:05 AM
