The Reds activated Bill Bray off the disabled list before the start of a series against the Minnesota Twins, giving Cincinnati three left-handed relievers.
Bray strained his groin during spring training and aggravated it during an 11-1 loss to St. Louis on April 18, when he gave up three hits and three runs. The Reds put him on the 15-day disabled list.
Last season, Bray was second in the NL with 79 appearances. He's made only five this season.
Right-handed reliever J.J. Hoover was optioned to Triple-A Louisville to open a roster spot Friday. Hoover was called up when Bray went on the DL and was 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in 17 appearances.
The Reds have three lefties in the bullpen - Bray, Sean Marshall and closer Aroldis Chapman.

There appears to be no hard feelings between the Reds and Indians after each club swept the other in their home parks over the last week. This is partly true because the two sides agreed to an alleged trade on Thursday, according to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer.Cincinnati is rumored to have received minor league first basemen Beau Mills in exchange for cash considerations, tweets...
Swept. Two series ago, the Reds swept the Indians while playing in Cincinnati. Yesterday, they gave up the trifecta to the Indians in Cleveland, and didn’t even look good doing it.
The final score was 1-8, and the only solace the Reds can take is that they would have lost only 1-5 if not for the most blatant missed call of the decade in the 7th inning. Frankly, that’s...
Before Cleveland, the Reds were on a 6-game winning streak. After Cleveland, they own a 3-game losing streak. The latest in the string of putrescence was last night’s 1-8 loss.
Bronson Arroyo started for the Reds and managed to get himself out of trouble every inning until the 4th, when his start ended. In 4.0 innings, Arroyo allowed 5 runs (earned) on 8 hits and 2 walks.
INSIDE PITCHLeft-hander Aroldis Chapman is fine physically although Reds manager Dusty Baker mentioned earlier this week that Chapman had some lower back pain."I don't see it as an issue," pitching coach Bryan Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer before Wednesday's 8-1 loss to Cleveland. "He's gone in there and gotten treatment for his lower back, but he...
