GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Through the first four days of Spring Training, the Reds haven't had to hold many pitchers back from full participation. The exceptions have been Mat Latos, who had left knee surgery Friday on the first day of camp, and Jonathan Broxton, who is on a modified throwing program as he comes back from August forearm surgery.

"We're in really good shape," manager Bryan Price said Monday.

The Reds are also making sure they don't overload lefty reliever Sean Marshall, who missed most of last season with shoulder tendinitis.

"I want to make sure he's fully strong because of the shoulder," Price said. "The strength in the shoulder is good. We had a little bit more conservative offseason for him so he had more time on the front end to get his shoulder strong before he got too deep into his throwing. I don't want to see him on work overload on the front end of Spring Training. He's 100 percent but a guy that I watch."
