WSC Birth Years: Nick Masset

Card #86 - Nick Masset

Born: May 17, 1982

Nick came to the White Sox, along with John Danks and a minor league player, from a trade with the Rangers for Brandon McCarthy and a minor league player in December 2006. While with the Pale Hose, Masset was used often, but was swapped between the majors and minors.

He languished in the middle relief role, causing a high ERA, but excelled finishing out games in non-save situations. His biggest contribution to the 2008 season was off the field. Nick was part of a deadline trade with the Cincinnati Reds. He and Danny Richar were sent to the Reds in exchange for Ken Griffey Jr., who was well past his prime, but provided key plays that helped decide the division in favor of the White Sox.
