Masset may face hitters Saturday in Arizona
CINCINNATI -- Reds reliever Nick Masset, who has been on the disabled list all season because of a right shoulder injury, resumed throwing bullpen sessions this week in Goodyear, Ariz. Masset could finally graduate to facing hitters in a 20-25 pitch live batting practice session on Saturday.

"He was having some issues and was basically shut down for a week," head trainer Paul Lessard said on Thursday. "After that week, he's ramped it up again. If all goes well Saturday, he'll be in a game."

Masset could see action in Arizona rookie league games before going on a Minor League rehab assignment.

"I'm worried about Saturday first," Lessard said. "Everything is in pencil right now."
