Justin Masterson will be the Cleveland Indians’ opening-day starter for the second straight season.

Indians manager Terry Francona told Masterson of the decision Tuesday, before the Indians lost for the first time this spring (4-1 to the Royals).

The Indians open the season April 2 at the Toronto Blue Jays.

It was an expected choice, but Masterson will look to have a bounce-back season after going 11-15 with a 4.93 ERA (159 Ks, 88 walks) in 2012.
