Sean Marshall (shoulder) could soon progress to facing live hitters soon.
Marshall, who has been throwing off a mound every three days for a month, said his next bullpen session slated for later this week could determine his next step. "It depends on how I feel after today," Marshall said. "I'm averaging 35-40 pitches each bullpen, plus long toss. I'm just trying to break it down and build it back up." Marshall hasn't seen game action since June 10, 2014, due to left shoulder issues. He could be back to get in a few games before the end of the year, but the southpaw will more likely rehab with an eye on being healthy to start the 2016 season. Aug 26 - 8:11 PM

It was the first time he's thrown since undergoing surgery in May to repair a torn anterior capsule. "He looked normal, not like a guy coming off shoulder surgery.

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.

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.

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.

Sean Marshall (shoulder) faced hitters Wednesday for the first time this spring.

Marshall threw live batting practice, and Reds manager Bryan Price said the session went well. The southpaw was bothered by shoulder soreness earlier in spring but he appears past that at this point. He's still be a few weeks behind his teammates in terms of readiness for the season -- he'll almost certainly begin the season on the disabled list -- but Marshall should be back with the club before too long.
