|Homer Bailey looking like a new man|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) At this point, I might just start calling the Marlins' offense "The Slump Busters." Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey entered Tuesday's affair stumbling a bit. Then he tossed his first complete game of the season. Even without the Marlins' help, however, Bailey is in the midst of his best season yet.
Bailey is striking out a career-high 9.12 batters per nine innings, while displaying his usual sterling control. He has walked just 2.45 batters per nine, and has made the transition to a majority groundball pitcher, after struggling for most of his career with home runs. Generally speaking, if you strike guys out, and don't walk them or allow home runs, you're probably going to have a good time on the mound.
Bailey's improved performance has come with a faster fastball (93.3 miles per hour), as well as an increased reliance on his splitter, the type of pitch that tends to lead to more frequent groundballs. If Bailey can keep this up, the 27-year-old might just live up to his former billing as a top prospect. After a few years of middling play, Bailey is worth starting in most Fantasy formats.

(5/14/13) Reds starter Homer Bailey threw his first complete game on Tuesday night against the Marlins. He allowed two runs on six hits over his nine innings of work in a 6-2 win. The right-hander also struck out 10 while not walking a batter.
Bailey (2-3) gave up an RBI single to Derek Dietrich in the first before really settling into a groove. His final damage came in the seventh when after an Adeiny Hechavarria triple, the runner scored on a sac fly.
The 27-year-old threw 88 of his 125 pitches for strikes and lowered his ERA to 3.51.
Bailey is scheduled to make his next start on Sunday against the Phillies. He worked eight scoreless innings against Philadelphia on April 16.
|Homer Bailey Ks seven in no-decision|

(5/7/13) Reds starter Homer Bailey lasted fewer than six frames for the second straight outing Tuesday night against the Braves. He allowed four runs on five hits over five innings of work.
The right-hander was tagged with a three-spot in the first before settling down a bit. In the fifth, he put an man on before Freddie Freeman hit an RBI single.
Bailey was done after throwing 93 pitches, 56 for strikes, and left in line for the loss but his teammates were able to battle back for the win. The 27-year-old also struck out seven and walked four in the no-decision.
His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Marlins. When Bailey faced Miami on April 21, he allowed two runs over six innings in the no-decision.

(5/1/13) Reds starter Homer Bailey allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday against St. Louis. He struck out four.
Bailey has now allowed 14 earned runs this season, with 11 coming in 10 1/3 innings at Busch Stadium. In his other four starts, Bailey has a 1.00 ERA with 30 strikeouts against nine walks.
|Homer Bailey takes tough-luck loss |
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(4/26/13) Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey was pegged as the tough-luck loser during Friday's game against the Nationals.
Bailey allowed just one run on six hits over seven innings, but it wasn't enough as Washington pulled out a 1-0 win. The lone run the right-hander surrendered came in the fourth inning on a RBI single by Jayson Werth. He was pulled after throwing 89 pitches -- 64 strikes -- and finished with six strikeouts without issuing a walk.
Bailey (1-2), who is now winless over his last four outings, will look to get back in the win column when he faces the Cardinals for the second time this month Wednesday. He allowed a season-high seven runs over five innings during his last outing against St. Louis on April 10.
|Homer Bailey pitched a career high 208 innings in 2012, sporting a 3.68 ERA and 1.24 WHIP, while also throwing a no-hitter in his penultimate start on September 28. Bailey's final numbers were solid, but owners in Head-to-Head leagues were consistently frustrated by his erratic results, as he had the habit of following up great stretches with a series of blowouts. In July, for instance, Bailey had a string of five starts with two or fewer runs allowed. And he followed that up with a six-run outing on July 31, followed by four or more runs allowed in four of his five August starts. Roto owners, however, gladly took the final results, unaffected by his up-and-down performances. Adjust accordingly for your league setup, but Bailey is likely to be taken in the later rounds of most drafts. (Updated 12/3/12)|
