Reds' Homer Bailey, Mike Leake set for minor-league work
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Reds pitchers Homer Bailey and Mike Leake will see their next spring action in minor-league games, MLB.com reports.
Bailey is working his way back from September elbow surgery. He threw two innings in a minor-league game Sunday, and the team has decided to keep him in minor-league action in order not to restart his disabled-list clock.
"We're on top of that," Reds manager Bryan Price said on Wednesday. "Backdating, we have to be aware of that so we don't pitch him in a game and find out it would affect our ability to activate him when we want him to during the season."
Leake will pitch in a minor-league game Saturday to allow the team to have more control over his outing.
"Start No. 5 in spring training for most starters is the most important because you almost have to get your innings and pitch allotment in that start or you have to go into your last spring training start trying to accomplish all those things," Price said. "I've seen it before where a guy gets knocked out in the second inning and has to go to the bullpen to throw four simulated innings and it's not nearly as productive."
Reds pitcher Mike Leake throws five strong innings Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Reds pitcher Mike Leake gave up just one run on four hits in five innings of work in Sunday's game against the Athletics. Leake added two strikeouts and no walks on 75 pitches in the outing.
"A few balls that I probably rushed got elevated a little bit," Leake said to MLB.com. "But all in all, I'm pretty happy. Just a couple of more [outings] to get back into it. So I'm trying to maximize the pitching."
DeSclafani, Marquis, Iglesias join Cueto, Leake in Reds rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Reds starting pitchers Anthony DeSclafani, Jason Marquis and Raisel Iglesias have secured spots in the rotation to begin the season, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. They join Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake.
Homer Bailey is still recovering from September elbow surgery and will start the season on the disabled list. Paul Maholm, who was also competing for a spot in the rotation, has been told he will now compete for a spot in the bullpen.
"I think we have a pretty good idea of where we're headed," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "That being said, we still have 2 1/2 weeks of spring training games to go to make sure, No. 1, that we're healthy, and No. 2, that how we feel now remains the same."
Reds pitcher Mike Leake throws four scoreless innings Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Reds pitcher Mike Leake rolled through four scoreless innings Tuesday against the Indians, allowing just two hits in the contest.
Leake, who could be slotted as the No. 2 pitcher in Cincinnati's rotation, was at least happy he found something to work on in the outing.
"Every first pitch was a ball except for one," Leake said, "so at least I got to work behind hitters and get out of bad counts, so that's a positive."
Leake finished with three strikeouts and one walk on the day.
Reds, Mike Leake avoid arbitration with $9.775 million deal
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) Pitcher Mike Leake avoided arbitration with Reds, agreeing to a one-year contract worth $9.775 million deal prior to Friday's deadline, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Leake logged 214 1/3 innings in 2014. He went 11-13 with a 3.70 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP and 164:50 K:BB ratio in 33 starts.
|2014 summary: Mike Leakedidn't become a radically different pitcher but showed improvements around the margins, even if they didn't show in his 11-13 record and 3.70 ERA for the Reds. The most impactful change for Leake was efficiency, as he made a career-high 33 starts covering 214 1/3 innings. The additional workload plus a higher strikeout rate (6.9 K/9, as compared to 5.7 in 2013) enabled Leake to strike out 164 batters, shattering his previous personal best by 42. For the first time, Leake profiled as a true ground ball pitcher, inducing grounders on 55 percent of hit balls.
Playing time status: With Mat Latos and Homer Bailey all missing significant time with injuries, Leake picked up much of the slack. Latos is gone for good now, as is Alfredo Simon, so Leake may get another shot to break 200 innings.
2015 outlook: Though Leake improved last season, he didn't do so to the degree that standard mixed league owners can trust him as more than a streaming option. Unless you play in a mixed league that has 15 teams or more, you can ignore Leake on draft day.
