MLB Injury News:
Lefty Reds setup man Sean Marshall was expected to resume a throwing session but all those plans have been nixed.
The #Reds have optioned Neftali Soto and moved Sean Marshall to the 60-day DL after suffering a setback, per @johnfayman.

Marshall, who has been on the DL since May 24th with a sprained left shoulder, experienced tendinitis toward the end of a bullpen session July 14th and has not thrown since.
"It was a small setback," manager Dusty Baker said. "Any setback takes you a week or so from where you were."
Marshall owns a 2.57 ERA and 0.86 WHIP (walks and hits per inning pitched) out of Cincinnati's bullpen, and Baker said the club needs its relievers to return as quickly as possible.
This DL move pretty much means that wish will not come true soon for Dusty. Since Marshall is on 60-Day DL now, he is retroactive to last start, which means he will be up for activation on September 20th.
Righty Jonathan Broxton has also been missing in action. He's been on the DL since June 15th with a sore elbow. Broxton is much closer to a return than Marshall however.
"The remaining games are getting fewer and fewer," Baker said.
In 29 games this season, Broxton has an inflated 4.33 ERA but he does have a very low WHIP of 1.30.
Broxton is expected back in August.

In case you missed it, Bronson Arroyo hurled a complete-game shutout Monday night against the San Francisco Giants, aided in part by a fantastic catch in center field by Derrick Robinson to put the finishing touches on an 11-0 victory.
The play came in the bottom of the ninth with two outs when Arroyo flipped a hanging breaking bal in...
The Reds have tapped into the Dominican Republic once again by signing 19-year-old pitcher Luis Tejada to a $600,000 signing bonus. This is according to a report by Ben Badler of Baseball America.
Tejada had previously inked a deal with the Atlanta Braves for $125,000, but that contract fell through after Major League Baseball discovered the southpaw lied about his age, and subsequently...
Cincinnati Reds third base coach Mark Berry is back in his familiar spot for the first time all season after undergoing treatment for throat cancer.
Berry made his 2013 debut coaching third in the opener of a four-game series at San Francisco on Monday night.
The 50-year-old Berry, the team's bench coach since 2003, has been with the organization as a player, minor league manager...

I ought to be talking about how Ryan Braun will sit out the rest of the season. Heck, I haven’t even mentioned the thing about Brandon Phillips complaining that the team misled him about his last contract yet. But I am just too eager to see what last night’s line-score will look like in this...
Ryan Ludwick was sent out on rehab assignment with the class A Dayton Dragons yesterday while they played the Lansing Lugnuts. Ludwick was the DH and had three plate appearances. He popped out, walked, and singled. Nice that he’s trying out all the possibilities. Perhaps tonight he could try out that home run muscle.
Ludwick has been out of the major league line-up...
Mike Leake is unexpectedly unbeatable on the road.
Chad Gaudin's winning streak, however, may be more surprising.
Leake looks to continue his mastery outside Cincinnati as the Reds attempt to solve Gaudin and re-establish their success against the San Francisco Giants in the finale of this four-game set Wednesday night.
Leake (9-4, 2.79 ERA) is tied with Mat Latos for the team...
This is from a Cincinnati Reds discussion forum I visit frequently to check the pulse of things. The discussion thread is titled “We have to talk about Corky”.
Reds fans are starting to echo our same point about Corky Miller from a while back – we assumed it would be his final big league stint – and now that festered splinter is back. Here are their mortified responses.
Devin Mesoraco had a three-run homer among his three hits for his second longball in as many games, Joey Votto and Zack Cozart also connected, and the Cincinnati Reds pounded the San Francisco Giants for the second straight game with a 9-3 win Tuesday in the opener of a traditional doubleheader.
Cozart finished 4 for 4 with two RBIs and three runs to back Tony Cingrani (4-1). The...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Even after his Reds fell behind early for a change, the way Cincinnati had been slugging it out against the San Francisco Giants left manager Dusty Baker confident his club would still pull off a win.
Too many missed chances did in Cincinnati this time in a 5-3 loss to the Giants, and the Reds settled for a split of their traditional doubleheader Tuesday night...

A pair of fans made their way onto the field during the second game of a doubleheader between the Reds and Giants at AT&T Field Tuesday night.
Another fan sitting in the front row on the first base side received an up-close view of all the action that took place when one of the intruders was brought down by security.
While the other fan was being tracked down near the infield...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds found just about every way to beat the San Francisco Giants this season after falling in frustrating fashion to the World Series champions last October.
Mike Leake led the latest -- and perhaps wackiest -- performance Wednesday night, pitching six-plus innings of wildly effective ball in Cincinnati's 8-3 victory over San Francisco.
The Reds split a doubleheader with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.
But when you lose Game 2 in a long frustrating fashion, the split doesn't feel so even.
"Long day," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Real long day."
The Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 9-3 in Game 1 and fell 5-3 in Game 2 before a crowd of 42,310 at AT&T Park.
In Game 2...
Tim Lincecum got shelled, Bronson Arroyo was brilliant, and the Reds scored in each of the first seven innings on their way to route the Giants 11-0 in the first game of the series.
It didn’t take long for the Reds to end Lincecum’s bid for another no-hitter, as Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a double, and Derrick Robinson followed it up with a single. Lincecum struck out...
