Justin MastersonMasterson will enter camp as a starter, but if all goes well he will open the year in the bullpen, where he could be a critical weapon in an array of roles for Farrell and manager Terry Francona. "We're going to bring Masterson in and lengthen him out as a starter for a couple of reasons," said Farrell. "First, that's what's consistent with his throwing program [historically]. Second, along with [Ramon] Ramirez and [Hideki] Okajima, if we need him to give us multiple innings [in relief], he's capable of that."
