Lefty reliever Bill Bray announces his retirement

Southpaw Bill Bray, a six-year Major League veteran, announced his retirement via Twitter on Sunday evening.

Bray had expressed intent to continue his career in February, but he says he injured his left shoulder again and will need labrum surgery.

Bray retires with a 3.74 ERA in 197 1/3 innings with the Reds and Nationals. We wish him the best of luck post-baseball.
