Nicholas Allen Masset is a professional baseball player from the USA and plays as a pitcher. Masset went to the Pinellas Park High School where he was an integral part of his school’s baseball team. He went on to college at St. Petersburg Junior College and then was straight into the farm system at the Texas Rangers in 2000 after the entry draft.
In 2004, he made his first appearance in the A-League with the Stockton Ports in 2004. His performance just kept improving and soon, Masset was playing in the AA-League with the Frisco RoughRiders. In 2006, before being called up to the Major League team, Masset was playing for the Oklahoma RedHawks in the AAA-League. By the end of the year, the Rangers decided to trade him out, and Masset had a new home in the Chicago White Sox.
Masset arrived at the White Sox with John Danks and Jacob Rasner while Brandon McCarthy and David Paisano came to the Rangers. Almost 7 – 8 months later, he was sent to the Cincinnati Reds along with Danny Richar while Ken Griffey Jr. went the other way. Up until the 2008 season, Masset had a 4-3 win-loss record with a 5.07 ERA with 68 strikeouts to his name.
