The Nationals have announced their first round of cuts this spring sending pitchers Bill Bray, Tanner Roark, Brandon Mann, and Will Ohman to minor league camp.

Bray headlines the group as a lefty who has the best chance of the four to make an impact on the major league club this season. The 30-year-old returned to the organization in December with a minor league deal after spending six seasons with the Reds. He pitched in two spring games this year and allowed five hits and two earned runs in two total innings.

Roark, 26, leaves camp after pitching just 2 1/3 innings this spring. He allowed four earned runs and three walks to post a 15.43 ERA. He spent all of 2012 at Triple-A Syracuse.

Mann and Ohman both joined the Nationals this offseason. Mann came over after playing in Japan for the last two seasons while Ohman signed in February after pitching for the Chicago White Sox.
