 CINCINNATI (AP) - Left-handed reliever Sean Marshall has had another minor setback in his comeback from a sore pitching shoulder.
Manager Dusty Baker said Marshall saw a doctor on Friday, a day after he had a problem while throwing. Baker said the issue is minor and Marshall could be back on his throwing program in a few days. The set-up specialist has been on the disabled list since May 24.
The Reds also are missing right-handed set-up man Jonathan Broxton, on the DL since June 15 with a sore elbow. He's closer to being ready for a return.
Cleanup hitter Ryan Ludwick took batting practice on the field Thursday for the first time since he tore cartilage in his right shoulder on opening day. Baker said he's close to starting a rehab assignment.
