Ryan Ludwick Is Close To Rehab Assignment

Ryan Ludwick took batting practice Thursday during the workout that followed the All-Star break.

"He looked real good," Dusty Baker said.  "He is about to go out pretty soon.  Ludwick is four months behind everybody."

Ludwick was injured in the second inning of the Reds' season opener, separating his right shoulder on a head-first slide.   The Reds' projected cleanup hitter and leftfielder wasn't supposed to return until mid-August.

It appears that he will be ready before then.

"We have to get him enough at-bats so that when he comes back, it's not spring training," Baker said.  "He wasn't supposed to be back now but this guy has worked his butt off.  He must have a strong mind to beat the clock on this.  If there is such a thing as will power, he has it."

Sean Marshall had a minor setback.  He went to see the doctor.

"He (Marshall) is going to get back to it (throwing program) soon," Baker said.  "We are all relieved.  Broxton is feeling real good too."

Marshall was placed on the 15-day disabled list most recently on May 24.  He has pitched in just 11 games.
