Sayonara Tom Mastny

Chris KreitzerSenior Analyst IDecember 9, 2008

The Tribe's 40-man roster is now down to 38, as reliever Tom Mastny was sent packing off to the far east.
The Yokohama Baystars purchased the contract of the Cleveland reliever who spent parts of the prior three years with the club. Tom terrific posted a 10.80 era in 14 games and one memorable June start in Texas.
His two claims to fame as an Indian were taking over the closer's role after Bob Wickman was traded away in 2006 and pitching well in the ALCS against Boston, hurling four and two-thirds scoreless innings in three outings.
Here's to you Tom! Good luck and make sure to buzz a fastball in on the chin of Tuffy Rhodes.
