Sean Marshall Starts Throwing Program Could Be Back This Season

It was only 10 minutes but Sean Marshall was as excited as he was when his Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup.

Marshall prepared himself for season, possibly career-ending surgery, on May 25 but was pleasantly surprised when the surgeons discovered there was less damage than they thought.


"I threw 10 minutes, free and easy," said the 32-year old, left-handed curveball specialist. "I will throw every other day. So far, so good, I'm back on track."

Marshall was throwing with bullpen coach Mack Jenkins, who roots for the Blackhawks' NHL rival and Stanley Cup runnerup the Tampa Bay Lightning.

"I made sure he knew who won," Marshall said.

Bryan Price had a lot of good news on the pitching front this morning. Marshall stood out.

"It was a great day," said Price, who also had good reports on Raisell Iglesias and Tony Cingrani. "From having surgery to playing catch the first day of July is remarkable. If ever you can get excited about a 10-minute game of catch.  Hopefully, we get him back this year. He is a very accomplished, talented pitcher."

Marshall signed a three-year extension with the Reds on February 27, 2012 which concludes at the end of this season. After making 73 appearances in 2012, Marshall appeared in just 31 games since then, throwing just 24 1/3 innings.
