Re: Sean Marshall to DL; Ondrusek called up
My problem with the way this was handled is that when the season started he had a fatigued shoulder that was going to keep him out until Friday of the that week or so they though. A DL stint at that point would have kept him out until Saturday or Sunday- just 1 or 2 days more. By DL'ing straight off the Reds would not have been short-handed in the pen and could have been more conservative with his return if need be. They also could have tried him out in game conditions in L'ville to see how he reacts. Now they know but he will be unavailable much longer. I am glad they are being conservative and putting him on the DL, I just wish it had happened 10 days ago.
While Ondrusek was the alternative, he certainly could have been used in the 15-0 game and at the end of the 13-4 game saving Hoover's arm a bit and at least made it so another arm was available in those extra inning games..
