Sean Marshall (shoulder) has been throwing off flat ground for a week.

Sean Marshall (shoulder) had a setback recently and has not been cleared to throw off a mound.

"Two weeks ago, I was doing three sets of long-tossing from 120 feet, feeling pretty good," Marshall said Wednesday. "But I kind of had a little soreness in my shoulder. I got out here (to Arizona) February 6. I had to slow down a bit. I'm not on the mound yet. Hopefully, I'll resume pretty quick and finish that long-toss session of the rehab, then throw on some flat ground and be on the mound soon." Marshall seems optimistic that it's a minor bump in the road, but that his surgically-repaired shoulder is already acting up on him again isn't a good sign. He's been limited to 31 appearances over the past two seasons due to shoulder issues and had an operation to repair a torn labrum last June.

Sean Marshall is making progress from left shoulder surgery.

Marshall has been limited to 31 appearances over the past two seasons due to shoulder issues and underwent surgery in June to repair a torn labrum. "My therapy has been going great," said Marshall. "It really is. My strength is there. I still have a little range of motion work that I've been doing, but every day is better. I definitely feel like I have a new shoulder, so it's good and strong." Marshall is set to begin a throwing program in mid-to-late November and hopes to be ready for spring training. He's set to make $6.5 million next season in the final year of a three-year, $16.5 million contract.

Reds manager Bryan Price is hoping that Sean Marshall (shoulder) will be ready to join the bullpen "within that first week or two of the regular season."

Marshall has been limited to flat ground throwing after having a setback last week with his shoulder tendinitis. He could resume throwing off a mound on Friday, but that's not certain. "We're real happy with how he's rebounded after a few days off," Price said. "After re-initiating his throwing program, he hasn't had any setbacks, and he feels really good. He's definitely behind schedule, but if we don't have any setbacks and we're optimistic, he'll be ready at least within that first week or two of the regular season."
