William Paul "Bill" Bray (born June 5, 1983 in Virginia Beach, Virginia), is a Major League Baseball relief pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds. He is a graduate of the College of William and Mary. He attended Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach.

The left-handed Bray was the thirteenth overall selection in the 2004 draft by the former Montreal Expos franchise which relocated to Washington, D.C. and was renamed the Washington Nationals. Bray made his major league debut on June 3, 2006, against the Milwaukee Brewers in Milwaukee, pitching a perfect one-third of an inning and earning the win. Bill Bray did not surrender a run in his first six games. His first run allowed was on a solo home run to Colorado Rockies second baseman Jamey Carroll (a former Nationals teammate) on June 14, 2006 at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.. The Rockies ultimately won the game 14-8 and tagged Bray for five runs in two innings.

Almost a month later, on July 13, 2006, Bill Bray, along with infielders Royce Clayton and Brendan Harris, reliever Gary Majewski and starter Daryl Thompson were traded to the Reds for outfielder Austin Kearns, infielder Felipe Lopez and pitcher Ryan Wagner.

Bray began the 2009 season with the Triple-A Louisville Bats after failing to earn a spot on the Reds' roster. After only a few games in Louisville, Bray underwent Tommy John surgery to repair his left elbow and missed the rest of the year. Bray was called up from Triple-A Louisville June 27, and made his 2010 debut with the Reds on June 28, 2010 pitching one inning vs the Philadelphia Phillies.
