Bray makes his 2012 debut vs. Cards
CINCINNATI -- Because Bill Bray was limited to 3 2/3 innings over four games during the Cactus League schedule because of a groin injury, manager Dusty Baker has said the Reds' lefty reliever was rusty and still in "Spring Training mode."

Until Monday, Bray had yet to see action in the regular season. His season debut came in relief of Homer Bailey during the Reds' 7-1 loss to the Cardinals. Bray pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing one walk and recording two strikeouts.

"You can't get those innings I missed in Spring Training back, because there is no situation where it doesn't count anymore," Bray said. "But I feel good. Am I throwing all of my pitches? Yes. I feel like I am ready.

"I can do whatever they need me to do. We have a good bullpen, especially with [Aroldis] Chapman and [Sean] Marshall. We've got a great starting staff. Whatever they want me for, I am happy to do."
