Cubs, Reds Discussing Sean Marshall

The Cubs and Reds are reportedly discussing a trade that would send LHP Sean Marshall to Cincinnati, according to Ken Rosenthal. Marshall, 29, is owed $3.1MM in 2012, and would become a free agent after this season. Though he was initially brought up as a starting pitcher, he's spent the last two years pitching out of relief -- and he's done so with much success: since 2010, he's posted a 166 ERA+ and 4.02 strikeout-to-walk ratio in just over 150 innings.

The Cubs are targeting Reds LHP Travis Wood, who has a career 4.18 ERA/3.75 FIP in 35 starts. He's not arbitration-eligible until 2014, and he would become a free agent in 2017. Following the Reds' acquisition of Mat Latos, Wood appears to be expendable.
