Notes: Obviously, the big news is that staff ace Brett Marshall was placed on the DL. The injury leaves Shaeffer Hall as the only starter not to get injured this year. In fact, Hall has never missed a turn in two years with Trenton. ... Additionally, third baseman Kevin Mahoney and shortstop Walter Ibarra were on the field before BP taking grounders. Mahoney was taking the grounders on his knees.

Update - 6:47: Brett Marshall has bursitis is his left leg. He'll miss one start. ... Craig Heyer and Josh Romanski each threw bullpens on Sunday and will throw again on Wednesday. Romanski is recovering from a blister and Heyer is dealing with a sore shoulder. Heyer said he expects to be activated in the first week of July. ... Cory Arbiso said his back is pain-free, but there is still no timetable for his return.

Update - 8:13: Here are videos of two O'Brien strikeouts
