On road with Reds, Marshall at critical juncture

ST. LOUIS -- Reds lefty reliever Sean Marshall could be at a key point as he attempts to return from a sprained left shoulder. Marshall, who resumed a throwing program last week, has joined the club on the road trip to continue throwing. He's been on the disabled list since May 24.

Marshall took Sunday off after five straight days of throwing. The hope is he can increase the distance and intensity.

"His throwing mechanics look good. He's not having any discomfort in the area of concern," Reds pitching coach Bryan Price said. "We're hoping we can add some aggressiveness to his throwing this week here on the road. This is really a time we have to find if he's healthy enough to be able to help us this year. If not, we'll have to change how we approach his injury."
