Marshall for Wood nearly done?

The Reds appeared close Wednesday to completing a trade that would land left-handed reliever Sean Marshall from the Cubs in exchange for young lefty starter Travis Wood and two Minor Leaguers.

According to ESPNChicago.com, the deal was agreed to pending physicals. A source confirmed the Reds’ interest in Marshall to MLB.com, but did not expect the trade to be consummated on Wednesday.

Cincinnati currently has a vacancy for the closer’s role, but are looking at Marshall as a lefty set-up man.

This will really help the Reds out big time. I like the deal, as long as the two minor leaguers mentioned are not top prospects.

big trade and hepls great but lets not suddenly give up all our top prospects if deal happens time to get our attentions to a closer and a free agent left fielder lets get rest of work done
