Bears Sign Import Ken Ray

It should come as no surprise to those that have been reading this blog that the Bears have signed another American pitcher. Ken Ray has joined the Kaohsiung-based club and he brings with him an extensive resume.

Ray began his pro career in the Royals system in 1993, finally making it to the show in '99. He went 1-0 in 13 games that season before arm troubles significantly affected his career. After spending the next few seasons in the lower levels of pro ball he staged an impressive comeback 2005, when he made it back up to triple A in the Braves system. The Georgia native completed his resurgence the next season as he was called up to the parent club, racking up 67 2/3 innings in 69 appearances for Atlanta.

That was to be Ray's last stint in the big leagues. He has spent most of his time since then back in AAA for various organizations.
