Bray resumes throwing; Masset progressing
PITTSBURGH -- Injured Reds reliever Bill Bray, who has been battling left groin and lower back injuries, resumed a throwing program on Monday at extended spring training in Arizona. Bray, who also threw on Tuesday, is working from a distance of 60 feet.

Reliever Nick Masset, who has been out all season with a shoulder injury, continues to throw and increase his distance and has had no known issues.

Third baseman Scott Rolen, currently on the disabled list with a strained left shoulder, has yet to resume hitting and baseball activity.

"Once he goes, he gets from 0-100 quickly and it's not easy to hold him back," head trainer Paul Lessard said. "We want to make sure he has a good base of strength there before we get crazy."
