Sean Marshall was on the active roster but unavailable for the first week of the season due to shoulder fatigue, finally made his 2013 debut on Sunday, and is now headed to the disabled list with what’s being called tendinitis.

Marshall threw a scoreless inning Sunday and an MRI exam revealed no structural damage, but afterward manager Dusty Baker was quoted as saying “he’s not right.”

To replace Marshall on the roster and in the bullpen the Reds called up Logan Ondrusek, the 6-foot-8 right-hander who spent most of the past three seasons in Cincinnati’s bullpen logging a combined 175 innings with a 3.45 ERA. It speaks to the Reds’ reliever depth that a guy with as much big-league success as Ondrusek was in the minors to begin with, but they’ll definitely still miss Marshall.

    It would have been nice if they had just done this from the beginning instead of carrying a pitcher that couldn’t pitch. It became one of those Dusty things that everyone hates. People keep asking “if Marshall can’t pitch then why not back-date DL him and bring someone who can?” So Dusty says “damnit i’ll do what I want” and keeps him around for a week just because.

    Hopefully he returns soon, Parra is looking like he might not deserve a job.

    Well this sounds promising. Gotta love those nagging and unidentifiable shoulder ailments.
