Reds’ Sean Marshall dealing with shoulder fatigue

Cincinnati Reds left-handed reliever Sean Marshall has yet to make an appearance for the team this regular season. This is certainly strange considering he’s one of the club’s top bullpen arms, and the reason for his absence was determined yesterday. Marshall told reporters – including John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer – that he is batting arm fatigue.

“Spring training was so long,” he said. “I got a little bit of fatigue in my shoulder. Just precautionary, they had me doing some therapy and getting it strong again. I’m probably a day or two away. Hopefully, I’ll be ready for (tomorrow’s) game.”

Marshall attributed his fatigue to the length of spring training, which was extra long this year due to the World Baseball Classic. While he’s continued to throw bullpen sessions, he hasn’t felt quite ready to make his season debut.

However, Marshall was hoping to throw a bit yesterday in hopes of being available for tonight’s game. Marshall has been a solid contributor out of the ‘pen for the Reds since they acquired him from the Chicago Cubs, but Cincinnati has been able to ease him into the season considering the presence of fellow late-inning arms Jonathan Broxton and Aroldis Chapman.
