Marshall: 'Hopefully this is one of those prayers that was answered'

May 25, 2015


Sean Marshall went into surgery for one thing, but ended up having something else done and as a result his career may be resurrected, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

“Instead of repairing the capsule in his left shoulder, Dr. David Altchek and Dr. Timothy Kremchek cleared out scar tissue in Marshall's left shoulder because that was all that was all that was needed.

“Instead of throwing again in six months at best, Marshall said he could be throwing again in six weeks. Reds manager Bryan Price said it's possible Marshall could return to the mound this year.”


The news was obviously well received among the Reds organization.

Reds manager Bryan Price said, “it's really nearly a miracle,” and Marshall was equally pleased.

“I had a lot of people praying for me, and hopefully, this is one of those prayers that was answered,” Marshall said. “I couldn't be more excited to get that news and get back with the team.”

Now that the door has been opened, Marshall's return is a possibility, but it's still far from a certainty.
