The Braves sign reliever Nick Masset


David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Braves have signed reliever Nick Masset.

Masset was DFA’d by the Marlins three days ago after making seven relief appearances in which he allowed three runs (two earned) on 11 hits and one walk while striking out five in eight and two-thirds innings. He had cleared waivers and elected free agency.

The last time the Braves had much to do with him was when he was on the other side of a plunking war with the Rockies last summer. The guy he plunked, though, got traded to the Astros over the winter, so no hard feelings.

The Braves made room on the 40-man roster for Massett by designating right-hander John Cornely for assignment. They made room for him on the 25-man roster by optioning Cody Martin to Triple-A.
