Masset undergoes surgery with eyes on next year

CINCINNATI -- Reds reliever Nick Masset, who has spent the entire season on the disabled list, had arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn capsule inside his right shoulder.

An exact recovery time wasn't known after the procedure, which was performed on Friday by Dr. Tim Kremchek. Masset spent all season trying to return after the Spring Training injury, but he had a setback during his Minor League rehab assignment last month.

"They did it now so he would be ready for next year," head trainer Paul Lessard said. "It wasn't getting better."
