Posted February 27, 2012 on AP on Fox
The Reds have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with set-up man Sean Marshall, who could become the closer down the road. They traded three players to the Cubs to get the left-hander in December. He'll be the set-up man to new closer Ryan Madson this season. General manager Walt Jocketty says the contract extension puts the 29-year-old Marshall in line to become the closer if that role opens up eventually. Madson has a one-year deal with a team option for next season. Marshall was entering the final season on a two-year deal that will pay him $3.1 million in 2012. The Reds traded left-handed starter Travis Wood, outfielder Dave Sappelt and a minor leaguer to get Marshall, who had a 2.78 ERA and 5 saves last season.
