Odds and ends
There had been reports early Tuesday that the Rockies were pursuing a trade for Reds lefty reliever Sean Marshall. Jocketty declined to discuss any trade rumors, but noted that Marshall - owed $12 million over the next two years -- was not a redundancy with the return of free-agent lefty reliever Manny Parra. Apparently, talks were halted because of Colorado's concerns about Marshall's medical history. He was limited to 16 games in 2013 because of shoulder injuries.
