BILL BRAY RUMORS & GOSSIP
At long last, the Reds have washed their hands of The Trade. The last remaining component, Bill Bray, was outrighted yesterday and chose free agency rather than being non-tendered later.
As you may recall, Bray was supposed to be the bright spot in a deal that sent right-fielder Austin Kearns and shortstop Felipe Lopez to the Washington Nationals in 2006. In addition to Bray, the...

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...

Bray is headed toward the sidelines
Yet another Reds reliever has been bitten by the injury bug as the team placed LHP Bill Bray (groin) on the 15-day DL on Wednesday. He joins fellow relief pitchers Nick Masset (shoulder) and Ryan Madson (shoulder) on the list of ailing arms from the 'pen.
The 28-year old Bray has been clearly bothered by the condition all spring...
Looks like there might be a good reason that LHP Bill Bray has been less-than-awesome so far this season, and it’s not that lingering curse from having been part of The Trade. The Reds have just put Bray on the 15-day DL retroactive to last Thursday with a left groin strain that’s … [visit site to read more]
The Reds have put left-handed setup man Bill Bray on the 15-day disabled list with a strained groin that has bothered him since spring training.
The move on Tuesday is retroactive to April 19. Bray gave up four hits and three runs during an 11-1 loss to St. Louis on April 18. The Reds already were missing closer Ryan Madson, out for the season with a torn elbow ligament.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. It would be easy for Bill Bray to throw his hands in the air and say, "Why me? Why put myself through this? Is there something else I can do?"

Uh, that's when he is healthy. And...
The Reds and Bill Bray avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one year deal, according to Bray (@B_Line45) on Twitter: "Contract is done...thanks to the @reds and my agents @OctagonBaseball. My family and I are extremely pleased."
He also divulged the length of the contract on Twitter in a reply saying, "one year, but I will still have another year before free...
