Reds placed LHP Sean Marshall on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 21, with left shoulder inflammation.

Mar 30 - 2:58 PM

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.

Sean Marshall (shoulder) will throw live batting practice Wednesday.

It will be the first time this spring that he's faced hitters. Coming back from shoulder tendinitis, Marshall will hang back in extended spring training but could join the Reds' bullpen sometime in April.

Sean Marshall (shoulder) threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Monday.

It was his second time throwing off a mound this spring. Marshall, bother by shoulder tendinitis this spring, showed no visible signs of discomfort during the session. The southpaw is making progress, but he has yet to appear in a game and appears likely to begin the year on the disabled list.
Mar 17 - 5:37 PM

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."
Mar 13 - 6:23 PM

Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday that Sean Marshall (shoulder) is "a couple of days" away from a bullpen session.

Marshall has been dealing with left shoulder tendinitis this spring after battling through shoulder issues for most of last season. Price indicated that it's probably unlikely the lefty will be ready for Opening Day. "He's feeling great but with his history and the shoulder from last year and not feeling great here early in camp, we are going to go on the ultra-conservative side and just make sure he does everything in his throwing protocol to verify that he's feeling great and then get him back on the mound," Price said.
Mar 11 - 6:53 PM

Sean Marshall told reporters Tuesday that his left shoulder is already feeling "much better."

Marshall has yet to make an appearance in a Cactus League game because of some lingering shoulder stiffness, but he'll throw on the side on Wednesday and still has ample time to prepare himself for the start of the regular season. Marshall tossed just 10 1/3 innings in 2013, so the Reds are treating him with extra care this spring.
Mar 4 - 1:18 PM

The Reds are being extra cautious with Sean Marshall (shoulder) this spring.

"He's just a little stiff," Reds manager Bryan Price said on Saturday. "We're going to be on the front end of this thing. We're going to back him off. He doesn't need a full Spring Training to be ready for Opening Day. He did all of his offseason throwing. Slowing him down a little bit here, hopefully, will pay dividends later in the spring." The left-hander was plagued by shoulder issues most of 2013, and the Reds are hoping to avoid a repeat this year. Marshall has yet to appear in a game for the Reds this spring.
Mar 1 - 8:05 PM

Sean Marshall (shoulder) declared himself fully healthy and ready to go at Reds camp on Friday.

The veteran southpaw worked hard this off-season to strengthen his shoulder in an effort to avoid a repeat of the 2013 campaign where he dealt with a nagging shoulder problem. He will once again work in a setup capacity in front of closer Aroldis Chapman.

Marshall appeared in only 16 games last season due to a shoulder injury. When he has been healthy, he has quietly been one of baseball's more effective relievers, posting a 2.44 ERA over the past four seasons, averaging better than a strikeout per inning and more than four strikeouts for every one walk.
