(AP) - The Cleveland Indians have placed pitcher Justin Masterson on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right knee Tuesday.

Masterson, the team's opening day starter, is 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA.

The right-hander allowed five runs and six hits in two-plus innings Monday against the New York Yankees, and was pulled without retiring a batter in the third. He walked three, hit a batter and rarely topped 90 mph in his 54 pitches, throwing only 24 strikes.

Masterson has given up 19 runs, 27 hits and 17 walks in 18 innings over his last five starts. He has pitched more than four innings once in that stretch.
