Reliever Bill Bray had a tough 2013. He was able to accrue just 4 1/3 innings of work with Washington’s Double-A affiliate in Harrisburg due to back, groin, and shoulder injuries. He racked up just 8 2/3 innings in 2012 with the Reds as well.
Bray, however, is hoping a team will offer him a chance to pitch in 2014 according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The 30-year-old has shown he can be effective when he can stay healthy, finishing 2011 with a 2.98 ERA. But staying healthy has been an issue for him throughout his career, having missed significant amounts of time in the past due to shoulder soreness, undergoing Tommy John surgery, groin strains, and those lingering back issues.
