Reds, Bray Avoid Arbitration

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 agency."

As soon as the dollar amounts come out, we'll post them on here.

Bray was 5-3 with a 2.98 ERA, and figures to be an integral part of the bullpen again this year. He held lefties to a .180 average last year, and righties hit just .226 against him. Bray (with Royce Clayton, Brendan Harris, Gary Majewski and Daryl Thompson) came to the Reds as part of the eight player deal that sent Austin Kearns, Felipe Lopez, and Ryan Wagner to the Nationals in 2006.
