Hopefully he can pick back up where he was before he got hurt.
This is a moot point, but what are the mechanics for putting a player on the 60 day DL, but they're in the minors. Does the player need to be activated to the major league roster, then transferred to the big club's 60 DL? I think that's how it works. Of course, if the Reds needed a roster spot, they could easily move Massett to the 60 day DL, but again with Janish coming back, it doesn't really matter.
