In addition to re-signing reliever Manuel Corpas this morning the Rockies have also added another right-handed bullpen option in Nick Masset.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Masset has agreed to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training. He can earn $1.2 million for making the team, with another $800,000 in potential incentives, and Masset has the ability to opt out of the contract if he’s not in the majors by June 30.

Masset had a good four-season run as a strong setup man for the Reds, throwing 285 innings with a 3.32 ERA from 2008-2011, but he’s missed the past two seasons with injuries and is now 31 years old.

    surprised he did not tear his rotator signing the contract. nice contract for the rockies in that he can only steal a million bucks from them when he makes the team before he gets injured again.
