Latest Updates

 

Reds pitcher Sean Marshall may return this season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Reds pitcher Sean Marshall was expecting to miss the entire season just a week ago. Now, Marshall is breathing a sigh of relief after his latest doctor's appointment, according to MLB.com.

Marshall was scheduled for season-ending shoulder surgery last Wednesday, but the doctor only found scar tissue when he began the procedure. 

"It's nearly a miracle," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "What a difference a day makes. He's fired up."

Marshall said the volume and thickness of the scar tissue in his shoulder led to a misdiagnosis. He is currently on the 60-day DL with the injury but is hoping to throw again this season. He posted a 7.71 ERA with 14 strikeouts in 14 innings of work in 2014. 


Reds' Sean Marshall scheduled for season-ending surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Reds pitcher Sean Marshall will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder. The procedure is scheduled for Wednesday and will be performed by Dr. David Altchek of the Mets, per the team's official website.

Marshall has been limited to 31 appearances since 2013 because of troublesome shoulder issues. The 32-year-old was working his way back from shoulder surgery in June. He pitched just 14 innings last season.

"I felt bad about it," manager Bryan Price said, per ESPN.com. "He's worked so hard. It's been a challenge. It's a huge blow for him and the team. We're a better team with a healthy Sean Marshall."


Reds place Homer Bailey, Jason Bourgeois, Sean Marshall on DL


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Reds have placed pitcher Homer Bailey (elbow) on the 15-day DL with outfielder Jason Bourgeois (shoulder) and Sean Marshall (shoulder) on the 60-day DL, retro to March 27, the team announced Sunday.


Reds still sorting out bullpen options


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/19/2015) While Aroldis Chapman is locked in as the Reds' closer, the eighth-inning job remains up in the air for the club as spring training winds down, according to MLB.com. 

Sean Marshall is still recovering from shoulder surgery in 2014, leaving the set-up man spot as an open competition between a trio of players - Sam LeCure, Manny Parra and J.J. Hoover

"I think right now what we're doing is we're trying to figure out who our best options are," Reds manager Bryan Price said. 

"We're going to have to evolve as a bullpen. I think we know that Chapman's the closer and that we're going to have to evolve into roles to a certain degree," Price added. "Opening Day, I couldn't tell you who would be in the eighth inning. … There's a lot of balls in the air with the bullpen beyond the closer."


Reds RP Sean Marshall (shoulder) dealing with flexibility issues


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Reds pitcher Sean Marshall is having flexibility issues as he attempts to return from shoulder surgery, MLB.com reports

"He can throw the ball OK," manager Bryan Price said. "He still has a little bit of biceps tendinitis, which isn't of great concern. His evaluation went very well. The feeling is he needs more range of motion. That's consistent with someone who did a lot of work on the shoulder in the offseason. It's strong, but you've got to create the flexibility portion. That's given him some tedious achiness that we'd like to get out of there."

Marshall had to deal with a setback earlier this spring but has resumed throwing.


Reds' Marshall resumes throwing following setback with shoulder


(3/2/2015) Reds reliever Sean Marshall, who underwent shoulder surgery in June, has been throwing from flat ground for a week since being shut down due to a setback, per MLB.com. Still, there is no date for Marshall to start throwing from a mound.

"It's a hard one to answer," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "What we're trying to do is get him to where he is completely pain free. He's been a little bit achy but nothing that would prevent him from throwing. It's a part of the process."

Marshall, who was limited to 14 innings last season, is 37-46 with a 3.86 ERA in his career.


Reds' Sean Marshall dealing with setback

(2/20/2015) Reds pitcher Sean Marshall is dealing with a setback after shoulder surgery, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer

Marshall had surgery back in June, and has been working his way back during the offseason. Two weeks ago, Marshall experienced some pain while throwing. "I was doing three sets of long-tossing from 120 feet, feeling pretty good," he said. "But I kind of had a little soreness in my shoulder. I got out here Feb. 6. I had to slow down a bit. I'm not on the mound yet."

Despite the setback, Marshall believes he'll return to action soon. "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 was limited to just 14 innings last season. He posted a 7.71 ERA. 


Sean Marshall expects to be cleared to throw in October


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I'm disappointed," Marshall said before throwing in the bullpen Monday. "I've kind of struggled with this shoulder a little bit where I can't rush. I did rush at the beginning. I had a good throwing program and when I got here in camp, I ramped it up too quick, too early. I threw a 60-pitch bullpen one day working on things. I felt the repercussions of that a couple of days later. I know I can't rush. I have to stay on their pace that the therapists and trainers recommend. I don't think I will be that much behind."

Marshall was only able to make 16 appearances last season due to injury.

Sean Marshall a few days away from first bullpen session


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Reds pitcher Sean Marshall is a few days away from throwing his first bullpen session, MLB.com reports.

Marshall has been participating in a throwing program but has yet to take the mound this spring. "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," manager Bryan Price told MLB.com. "He's not starting from square one. He threw all offseason and threw a handful of bullpens before he got here and three or four bullpens while he was here. He's more advanced than somebody that had to completely shut down for three or four weeks."

Marshall, who has been dealing with shoulder tightness this spring, was only able to pitch 10 1/3 innings with the Reds last season.

Reds being proactive about Sean Marshall's shoulder


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Reds reliever Sean Marshall is probably going to be eased into action in the spring, as the team looks to keep him healthy following a 2013 season beset by shoulder injuries. He has been working on a limited throwing program, has yet to appear in any of the team's first four games, and will be slowed even more moving forward, as manager Bryan Price told MLB.com Saturday.

"He's just a little stiff," Price said. "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."

Marshall appeared in just 16 games a year ago, and the team is hoping to take a more proactive approach to keeping him healthy. Especially since he posted a 1.74 ERA in 10 1/3 innings when he was able to pitch.

Marshall may not pitch during the first week or two of Cactus League games.
