The Cincinnati Reds may have identified the left-handed relief pitcher they've been looking for.  According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports, the Reds are in conversations with the Chicago Cubs about 29-year-old Sean Marshall.

Marshall has been one of the top set-up pitchers in baseball over the last two seasons, finishing 2011 with a 2.26 ERA in 78 appearances, and would fill a definite need on the Cincinnati roster.
