Reds give Marshall 3-year extension


As we reported in a column on this morning, the Cincinnati Reds were trying to extend the contract of lefty set-up man Sean Marshall.

The deal was completed Monday afternoon as the Reds extended Marshall’s contract for three years and it allows him to be a starter or the closer if Ryan Madson leaves in the off-season.

They traded three players to the Chicago Cubs, Travis Wood, Ronald Torreyes and Dave Sappelt to get the left-hander in December. Marshall, who is 29, will be the set-up man for Madson this season.

Marshall was entering the final season on a two-year deal that would pay him $3.1 million in 2012.

Marshall in his career has 7 saves, 439 strikeouts and a won-loss record of 32-40.

When the Cincinnati Reds acquired left-handed reliever Sean Marshall from the Chicago Cubs on December 23, fans and media felt they gave up too much talent just to rent a player for one year.

After all, the Reds gave up left-handed starter Travis Wood, outfielder Dave Sappelt and infielder Ronald Torreyes.

In the midst of Spring Training, the Reds and Marshall are trying to reach an agreement on a contract extension.

Both Marshall and Reds general manager Walt Jocketty have confirmed the two sides are trying to come up with agreeable terms.

The 29-year-old Marshall, one of the game’s best situational leftys, is signed through 2012 for $3.1 million and can become a free agent in the off-season.

In 2011, against NL Central Division rivals Milwaukee and St. Louis, Marshall recorded an ERA of 0.00 in 15 appearances covering 16.1 innings while with the Cubs.

The 6’7 reliever has a career ERA at Great American Ball Park of 2.42 in 26 innings pitched covering 26 innings.
