Broxton, Marshall updates
Don’t expect RHP and setup man Jonathan Broxton to be off of the the 15-day disabled list this weekend. Broxton, out since June 15 with a flexor mass strain in his right elbow, is eligible for activation on Saturday.
“Very unlikely,” Reds pitching coach Bryan Price said on Wednesday. “It needed some time to settle down. It was his first time playing catch yesterday. It went fine. He’ll play catch again today.”
LHP Sean Marshall is making progress and pitched on flat ground on Tuesday. He was very pleased.
“I jammed it out yesterday, 35 pitches,” Marshall said. “It felt good. Usually when I take a day off, I get a little bit out of sync but yesterday was good and today should be great.”
Marshall, who has been on the DL since May 24 with a left shoulder sprain, long tossed in the outfield today.
“Probably Texas, I will get on the mound,” Marshall said. “I might throw a light bullpen this weekend.”
