Orioles: Chris Ray (Part Deux)
Chris Ray said there was no suspense when he got to training camp this spring because he had answered all the questions about the condition of his reconstructed elbow over the previous year.
"All my doubts were pretty much gone before I started throwing again,'' Ray said. "I went four or five months without throwing a baseball (after the surgery), but I knew I was going to be fine after that first day of throwing."
He hasn't forgotten the date of that workout, because it was the first day of spring training last year.
"That was one of the happiest moments of my career when I went out there and threw like that on the first day of spring training,'' he said. "It was such a relief."
