Though it was all but a formality, Indians manager Terry Francona named right-hander Justin Masterson his Opening Day starter Tuesday.

It will be the third straight Opening Day assignment with the Indians for Masterson, who was an All-Star for the first time in his career last year.

Cleveland opens the season March 31, in Oakland.
