OAKLAND -- Reds left-handed reliever Sean Marshall has made advancements with his throwing program. Marshall is pleased with his progress after having pitched from flat ground for the first time on Tuesday.
"I jammed it out yesterday, 35 pitches," Marshall said on Wednesday. "It felt good. Usually when I take a day off, I get a little bit out of sync, but yesterday was good, and today should be great."
Marshall, who went on the disabled list for the second time this season on May 24 with a left shoulder injury, long tossed in the outfield on Wednesday.
"Probably Texas, I will get on the mound," Marshall said. "I might throw a light bullpen this weekend."
