Reds SP Homer Bailey 'ahead of schedule'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/6/14) Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey said Saturday that he's about seven-to-ten days ahead of schedule as he rehabs five days a week, MLB.com reports.
"I'm rehabbing every Monday through Friday ... fun stuff," Bailey said. "You're rehabbing instead of getting the time off you'd want. Once you're done with rehab, it's time to start working everything."
Bailey had surgery on Sept. 5 to repair a torn flexor mass tendon near his elbow.
"I'm about a week or a week and a half ahead of schedule. Everything looks fine," Bailey said. "I can't think of anything right now that I can't do. I haven't tried throwing yet, but even if I was healthy, I wouldn't start throwing until Christmas. That's the timetable they want me to start throwing, rehab-wise."
Bailey's status for the regular-season opener remains up in the air.
Reds hopeful Homer Bailey will be ready for start of 2015
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/24/14) The Reds are hopeful that pitcher Homer Bailey will be ready by Opening Day of next season, MLB.com reports.
"I don’t think he’s in jeopardy of missing any significant time during next year, if any at all," manager Bryan Price said Wednesday. "We’re hoping he’ll be ready by Opening Day but if not, it should be somewhere to close to it."
Bailey underwent surgery to repair a small tear in the flexor mass tendon near his forearm in early September. He went 9-5 with a 3.71 ERA and 124:45 K:BB ratio in 145 2/3 innings over 23 starts before being shut down.
Homer Bailey set for season-ending surgry
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/4/14) Reds pitcher Homer Bailey has opted for surgery to repair a torn flexor mass tendon in his right elbow, the team announced Thursday.
Bailey, who has not pitched since early August as a result of the injury, will have the surgery Friday, which will end his season. However, he is expected to be recovered and ready to pitch by the start of spring training, the team says.
Bailey finished the season with a 3.71 ERA in 145 2/3 innings of work, but had been pitching better after a rough start. He had allowed just five runs in 28 innings after the break before being shut down.
Reds considering surgery for Homer Bailey
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/2/14) The Reds are considering surgery for pitcher Homer Bailey, according to MLB.com.
Bailey would have surgery on his right forearm. The club is currently weighing whether it's worth it for Bailey to have the surgery. Manager Bryan Price admitted the decision is on the table. "As we move forward, we'll consider [surgery] as something that would certainly rectify the problem," according to Price.
Having surgery would be troublesome, as it could impact Bailey's readiness for the 2015 season. "If you're going to have a surgical procedure done, you don't want to wait too long because it will affect the ability to be ready for the season," Price added.
Reds reveal September callups
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/14) The Reds announced their September callups on Monday. Before making the moves, the team transferred Homer Bailey to the 60-day disabled list, ending his season. The team called up Carlos Contreras, Daniel Corcino, Jake Elmore, David Holmberg, J.J. Hoover, Tucker Barnhart, Donald Lutz, Yorman Rodriguez, Jason Bourgeois and Ryan Dennick.
|2014 summary: Homer Bailey took a step back from his 2013 breakout, as he was merely an average pitcher in terms of strikeouts and control. He did start to turn things around on June 29 when he blanked the Giants, and that kicked off a seven-start stretch during which Bailey compiled a 1.62 ERA. That string of performances was his last of the season, as he hit the DL with elbow soreness and never came back. Bailey had surgery on a tendon near his right forearm in September. He completed the season with a 9-5 record and a 3.71 ERA.|
Playing time status: Bailey may be able to return for the Reds' spring training, though his exact return date is not yet known.
2015 outlook: Though his 7.7 K/9 ratio didn't show it, Bailey's slider and splitter remained hard for batters to hit. He still has the potential to help with strikeouts and WHIP, but until we see his post-surgery form, Bailey enters this season riskier than he was a year ago. Nonetheless, he can be drafted as a top 40 starting pitcher.
