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. Feb 20 - 9:47 AM

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.

He's slated to earn $6.5 million from the Reds next season.

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

Marshall battled more shoulder issues this spring after dealing with them for much of last season. However, he's been throwing off a mound and should be ready to rejoin the bullpen in a few weeks.

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.

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."

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.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 06:53:00 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.
