Rockies sign Masset to minor-league deal
The Colorado Rockies signed right-handed relief pitcher Nick Masset to a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training, the New York Post reported Friday.
Masset can earn $1.2 million for making the team, with another $800,000 in potential incentives. He can opt out of the contract if he's not in the majors by June 30.
Masset, 31, missed the past two seasons with injuries after he went 3-6 with a 3.71 earned-run average for the Cincinnati Reds in 2011.
