    Bray activated, LeCure optioned to AAA

    Per the Reds Twitter account.

    Reds recall LHP Bill Bray, optioned RHP Sam LeCure to Louisville.

    Literally just texted my friend "sounds like bray is ready." He was called up 5 minutes later.

    I've never been a big bray fan but he seems to be the best option right now.

    Smart move to get Bray up before the Phillies series. With Howard/Utley coming to town, it makes sense to add another lefty to the bullpen. Nice job by Walt.

    Will Travis Wood be given a shot in Lecure's spot in the rotation or will Volquez be ready for Lecure's next start?

    This is great news. Bray will provide another quality major league arm to the pen....and hopefully help 'protect' Rhodes from having to be used in every high leverage 7th or 8th inning.

    Good for LeCure.....he battled hard up here and gave the club some much needed starts (most against opponents #1's and #2's) instead of rushing Wood, Chapman or Maloney.

    You would think it means Wood.

    Could be Wood, or they could re-arrange the rotation a bit to skip the next LeCure slot until Edinson's ready.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Seeing as how the Reds are trying to skip Leake's spot as much as possible, I don't see them skipping Lecure's spot too. I've got to believe they will go with either Wood or Maloney instead...

    I just saw they don't have a day off until the ASB, yeah they won't skip it.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I'm excited to have Bray back.

    16 K's and only 3 BB's in 10 IP, down on the farm.

    Hopefully he has his command issues worked out. I think he'll be a big help for this bullpen.

    Having Bray in the Bullpen makes me feel a little more optimistic about the Phillies series. 6 out of the next 14 games against them and having Rhodes as the only legit LHP spelled doom. Congrats to him for working hard for the last 14+ months to get back.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    I'm really glad Bray is back. I've always thought he should have been better than he's been. Maybe he's got things figured out now.
