CINCINNATI -- There is a good chance on Thursday that injured Reds reliever Nick Masset will throw a baseball for the first time in about a month. Masset has not pitched all season due to a strain in his right shoulder.
Masset is tentatively slated to begin a throwing program. The last time he threw in April, he had to shut down after only a few tosses due to soreness.
"We've got our fingers crossed that he doesn't feel anything and that it's healed," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "I know he's champing at the bit."
Masset reported on Tuesday that his shoulder was feeling good.
