Cubs sign fifth-round pick Trey Masek


CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs today signed their fifth-round selection from the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, right-handed pitcher Trey Masek out of Texas Tech University. The Cubs have now signed nine players from this year's draft, including three top-10 selections.

Masek, 21, was an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention and a Gregg Olson Breakout Player of the Year Semifinalist with the Red Raiders this season, his junior year. He went 5-2 with a 1.82 ERA (16 ER/79.0 IP), three complete games and one shutout in 11 starts. The Academic All-Big 12 First Team selection struck out a team-high 69 hitters and walked 22 while not allowing a home run in 79.0 innings of work. The righthander held the opposition to a .206 batting average (56-for-272) during the campaign.

The 6-foot, 1-inch, 195-pound Masek became one of just five Red Raiders since 1991 to lead the team in wins, ERA, complete games, innings pitched and strikeouts. Masek is just the second Texas Tech player in the last 14 years to be named to the Golden Spikes Award list. A native of Austin, Texas, Masek was named the Louisville Slugger Texas High School Player of the Year as a senior at Giddings High School.
