The Reds announced this morning that left-handed reliever Sean Marshall has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. Curtis Partch, a right-handed reliever, was optioned down to Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding roster move.

Marshall was limited to just 17 appearances last season due to shoulder problems and had more issues during spring training. However, the 31-year-old has made steady progress since, including a pair of minor league rehab appearances with Triple-A Louisville.

Marshall has been one of the game’s best relievers when healthy in recent seasons, posting a 2.44 ERA in 247 appearances since 2010. He’ll likely pitch in a set-up capacity for the Reds, but Bryan Price could give him some save chances along with Jonathan Broxton until Aroldis Chapman is ready to return from the disabled list.

    Just wanted to share a memory I will always have of Sean Marshall. A few years ago at Wrigley Field when he played for the Cubs, I was standing by the home dugout trying to get autographs before the game. Mr. Marshall came up to the crowd, tucked his glove into the backside of his uniform & proceeded to sign autographs for at least 30 minutes. He talked to fans as he signed & made sure that just about everyone went back to their seats with an autograph. Kids, adults, & all of us in between went home happy even though our Cubbies lost again to Prince Fielder’s Milwaukee Brewers. Even though Sean Marshall isn’t on the Cubs anymore I have continued to follow his career & am happy to hear he’s off the disabled list. He is truly one of the fan friendly good guys in all of baseball.

    that’s great but I suspect he will be back on after a game or 2 at most. another over paid sore armed pitcher picked up by walt. if they had half the payroll invested in guys who could play they might actually be able to afford a decent bench player for a change.
