With Sean Marshall set to undergo shoulder surgery on Tuesday, his Reds teammates decided to give him some moral support by setting up a "Shoulder Work Ahead" construction sign in front of his locker before Sunday's game against Toronto.

The southpaw is having surgery for the first time in his career to debride his left shoulder. For those of you unaware of the medical term, it basically means to clean it out.

"I think in the long run it will help this team," the 32-year-old said. "The doctors are confident with what they can do and how they can make me feel. I'm ready to start this journey.

"I'll work as hard as I can to get back."

Cincinnati placed the ailing hurler on the 60-day disabled list last week so Marshall's recovery isn't expected to be a speedy one.
