Soreness halts throwing program for Masset
LOS ANGELES -- Reds reliever Nick Masset, who has missed the entire season with a right shoulder injury, has been at the team's complex in Goodyear, Ariz., the past few days. However, Masset has not thrown to hitters yet. Actually, he has not thrown at all because of soreness.

"We'll give it a few days to hopefully let the treatment calm everything down so he's pain free," Reds head trainer Paul Lessard said. "When he has a pain-free range of motion, he'll start throwing."

Masset has had five bullpen sessions off of a mound since resuming his throwing program. He was with the club in San Francisco last week but only threw off of flat ground.
