Bray Called Up, Coffey Sent Down

From Mark Sheldon at

ST. LOUIS — The Reds swapped out a struggling right-hander on Monday for a lefty with a hot hand.

The right-hander, Todd Coffey, was optioned to Triple-A Louisville and lefty Bill Bray was recalled from Louisville to take his place.

Bray posted a 1.04 ERA with one save in his eight games for Louisville. He walked three and struck out 14 over 8 2/3 innings while opponents batted .133.

Thank you.  Hopefully this is the last time the Reds send Coffey back to Louisville to “work on his stuff”.  It is clear to just about every Reds fan that Coffey cannot be counted on to pitch in tight situations.  Now that the bullpen has become marginally better, one weak link can still ruin the game for everyone.
