Marshall will start Wednesday at San Diego. He took the roster spot of left-handed reliever Neal Cotts, who was optioned to Iowa on Sunday.
The 24-year-old Marshall was 6-9 with a 5.59 ERA for the Cubs in 2006, making 24 starts. He pitched only one inning in spring training while rehabilitating a left shoulder injury and began the season in the minors. He was 3-0 with a 2.05 ERA in five combined appearances with Class-A Daytona and Iowa.
The 27-year-old Cotts was 0-1 with a 4.86 ERA in 16 relief appearances with Chicago.
