Better to limit his use and get some effective use in high leverage situations than lose him entirely.
Another example of fans not having the same info as the team.
I said on the game thread that it was odd that Broxton and Marshall never warmed up.
But I disagree with Fay's suggestion here because it wasn't simply a matter of Marshall or Latos. There are other relief pitchers.
Marshall was the ideal choice, true, but Dusty should have relieved Latos that inning - even if Sean wasn't available. Fortunately, it worked out ok.
As for Dusty's general use of Marshall, injury or no, I endorse it. Marshall is especially tough on lefties, should mostly face lefties. There are other guys to focus on the righties.
