07:37 AM ET 01.28 | Not so fast? It appears discussions about a multiyear deal for Justin Masterson have been shelved while the Indians and his agent, Randy Rowley, work toward a one-year deal with or without the arbitration process. Masterson's arbitration hearing is scheduled for Feb. 20 in St. Petersburg, Fla. There is a $3.75 million difference between what Masterson is seeking for the 2014 season and what the Indians have offered. It's the biggest difference among any unsigned player who filed for arbitration this winter. The 6-6, 250-pound Masterson filed at $11.8 million. The Indians countered at $8.05 million. ... Masterson led the Indians with 14 wins last season. The fact that he can be a free agent at the end of the upcoming season makes these negotiations, and any that could follow on a multiyear deal, more compelling.
