The Cincinnati Reds are in no rush to push left handed reliever Sean Marshall who dealt with shoulder issues a year ago.

Marshall has been passed over for work in the Reds first four spring games by design.

“He’s just a little stiff,” Reds manager Bryan Price said on Saturday, via “We’re going to be on the front end of this thing. We’re going to back him off. He doesn’t need a full Spring Training to be ready for Opening Day. He did all of his offseason throwing. Slowing him down a little bit here, hopefully, will pay dividends later in the spring.”

In 16 games last season Marshall was 0-1 with a 1.74 ERA, two walks and 10 strikeouts over 10 1/3 innings.

It could be another week before the Reds allow Marshall to pitch in a game.
