The Marshall Plan in Cincinnati Reds

Another piece of the Cincinnati Reds' injury-plagued bullpen could be back in a day or two.

Sean Marshall, shut down in spring training after experiencing tightness in his shoulder, has rejoined the Reds on their current road trip. While it is unclear when he will be placed on the active roster, the Reds say it will be soon, reports John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Marshall pitched in back-to-back games for Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday and Wednesday. When Jonathan Broxton was working his way back from the disabled list, the Reds gave him two days off after his back-to-back outings and then activated him. If that's the case with Marshall, he'll be activated Saturday.

Long reliever Logan Ondrusek could be the odd man out when Marshall is activated.

There also is good news on Aroldis Chapman, who threw his second bullpen session on Thursday. Chapman, who was hit in the face with a line drive in spring training, has been given the green light to participate in pitcher's fielding practice and pitch in live batting practice.
