Contract negotiations between the Cleveland Indians and Justin Masterson reportedly broke off Thursday after the sides remained far apart on financial terms of a potential extension, according to multiple media outlets.

Masterson, projected to be one of the top starting pitchers in free agency next offseason, is seeking a multiyear deal worth approximately $17 million annually, according to reports. The right-hander’s agent proposed multiple offers to the Indians more than two weeks ago.
