Left-hander Sean Marshall felt fine today after his rehab outing with Triple-A Louisville yesterday. “I played catch from 90 feet,” he said. “My arm bounced back good.” He’ll throw in another game for Louisville tomorrow. Rather than start the game, as he did last night, he’ll be in the mix with the relievers. Will that be it for rehab outings? “We’ll see,” he said. “It’s up to them. I’ll go game-by-game. It’s the upper people’s decision. I’m going to do my best tomorrow and try to make pitches. I want to get ready and pitch and contribute to this team. We’re playing great baseball.” Marshall pitched a perfect inning for Louisville and struck out two. “I felt really good in the bullpen,” he said. “I went back to my starting pitcher days. It’s been a while. I treated it like a relief appearance. I was warming up at about 6:57. I pretty much went from the bullpen out to the mound. I treated it like a real game. I threw all my pitches — fastballs, curveballs and sliders. Everything felt good coming out of my had. “I was encouraged and excited. Hopefully, I’ll join the team real soon.” BROXTON OK: Right-hander Jonathan Broxton was OK after getting hit on the outside of pitching had in last night’s game. X-rays were negative. “It’s good,” he said. “Fine.” Broxton’s hand did go numb after the shot off the bat of Nate Schierholtz hit him.
