Salary Arbitration

MLB.com's Mark Sheldon has the initial story of Cincinnati's new contract agreement with reliever Nick Masset. The club avoided arbitration with a two-year deal worth

Masset posted excellent numbers setting up Reds closer . He earned five wins in relief with a 2.37 ERA. He limited baserunners, allowing just 78 players to reach via hit or walk in 76 innings pitched, while notching 70 strikeouts. He also stranded men on the bases, preventing 34 of the 50 runners he inherited from coming around to score.  Cincinnati acquired Masset and Danny Richar from the White Sox in 2008 for Ken Griffey Jr..

Masset's signing continues the hectic pre-arbitration signing period and reduces the number of players whose cases are pending to 126. The Reds remaining arbitration eligible player is Jared Burton. Reds GM Walt Jocketty indicated the club wanted to resolve their arbitration cases before the club and players exchanged figures on January 19th.
