GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Injured Reds relievers Sean Marshall and Jonathan Broxton and third baseman Jack Hannahan will remain in Arizona after camp breaks to work out and play with the remaining Minor Leaguers.

"This is where we're got games going when we leave for Pensacola and Louisville," Reds manager Bryan Price said.

Because the Friday and Saturday Reds exhibition games at Double-A Pensacola and Triple-A Louisville count as big league exhibitions and would prevent backdating disabled-list stints, the three players cannot participate.

Marshall, who has not pitched in a game all spring because of left shoulder soreness, is scheduled to face hitters in live batting practice on Wednesday.

Hannahan, who is recovering from October right shoulder surgery, has been able to hit in games but can't throw effectively on a consistent basis. Hannahan has yet to throw across a diamond from third base to first base in a game.

"He's done it in practice," Price said. "I don't want to say tentative, but it's certainly not at game speed. It might be a day on, a day off or two days on, a day off. He's not throwing every day."

Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco has not swung a bat since straining his left oblique on Wednesday.

"He has increased the amount of rotational exercises he's been doing but has not swung the bat," Price said. "I don't know if that's in the cards today or tomorrow."
