Marlins sign veteran reliever Nick Masset


From Jon Heyman of CBS Sports comes word that the Marlins have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with relief pitcher Nick Masset. It’s not clear whether the deal has an invitation to major league camp for spring training, but the 32-year-old righty is doubtful to crack the Opening Day bullpen anyway.

Masset posted a rough 5.80 ERA, 1.78 WHIP, and 36/24 K/BB ratio in 45 innings last season for the Rockies. He registered a 3.15 ERA in 223 innings of relief for the Reds between 2009-2011 but didn’t pitch at the MLB level in 2012-2013 due to shoulder issues.
