Game 20: vs. CHC; Marshall update
*Reds left-handed reliever Sean Marshall, who has been on the 15-day disabled list since April 10 (retroactive to 4/8) because of tendinitis in his left shoulder, is scheduled to pitch on a rehab assignment Monday night for Triple-A Louisville, at Indianapolis. Marshall is eligible to be activated on Tuesday. My presumption is if he feels good Tuesday morning after pitching, he will be activated.
UPDATE: Dusty Baker indicated Marshall could get more than one game in his rehab assignment.
“There could be some more. Usually one is not enough,” Baker said. “You’ve got to do a day in between, then usually a back-to-back. We’ll see how he comes out of this.
“Just the fact that he went out is a positive sign.”
*The last time Joey Votto hit a homer in three-straight games was July 26-28 vs. the Mets at GABP.
