|Reds Trade 3 to Cubs
|CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds have acquired left-handed reliever Sean Marshall from the Chicago Cubs for young lefty starter Travis Wood and two other players.
It was the second time within a week that the Reds gave up several prospects for pitching help. They earlier sent four players to San Diego for starter Mat Latos.
The 29-year-old Marshall was 6-6 with a 2.26 ERA last season. He had five saves.
Wood is 24. He made 35 starts for the Reds over two seasons. He finished 6-6 with a 4.84 ERA in 2011, with a stint in Triple-A after struggling early in the year.
The Cubs also get 24-year-old outfielder Dave Sappelt, who batted .243 in 38 games, and 19-year-old infield prospect Ronald Torreyes.
