Reds extend P Marshall through 2015

The Cincinnati Reds signed pitcher Sean year contract extension, aiming to keep the southpaw in southern Ohio through the 2015 season.

A towering presence at 6-foot-7, Marshall finished 6-6 with a 2.26 earned run average and five saves in 78 appearances for Chicago a season ago.

The 29-year-old native of Richmond, Virginia has compiled a 32-40 record with a 3.96 ERA and seven saves in 292 games (59 starts) for the Cubs since 2006.

Cincinnati acquired Marshall from the Cubs in December.
