Reds place pitcher Homer Bailey on DL with right elbow sprain
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) The Reds have placed pitcher Homer Bailey on the 15-day DL with a right elbow ligament sprain, retroactive to April 24, and recalled pitcher Carlos Contreras, the team announced Monday.
Bailey came off the disabled list April 18 and made two starts before landing back on the DL. He posted an 0-1 record with a 5.56 ERA and three strikeouts in 11 1/3 innings.
"It's a messy and unbelievably unfortunate both for him as an individual and for our ball club," manager Bryan Price said. "(Bailey) certainly won't be pitching here in the near future."
Contreras has posted a 1-0 record in six appearances with a 1.08 ERA for Triple-A Louisville.
Reds SP Homer Bailey yields two HRs in no-decision Thursday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey showed improvement in his second start of the season Thursday against the Brewers, even though he ended up with a no-decision.
The right-hander, who allowed five earned runs on nine hits and three walks in his season debut Saturday, allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk in 5 2/3 innings Thursday. He struck out three.
Both of the runs Bailey allowed Thursday came on solo home runs. Adam Lind led off the second inning with a home run, giving Milwaukee a 1-0 lead. Aramis Ramirez led off the fifth inning with a home run, which tied the game at 2.
Bailey was lifted in the sixth inning after issuing a two-out walk to Khris Davis.
''I think he managed the game better,'' Reds manager Bryan Price said of Bailey, per the Associated Press. ''I don't think he had as good of stuff as far as sheer velocity, but I think this is kind of the road we're going to travel until he's 100 percent.''
Bailey is scheduled to make his next start in a rematch with the Brewers on Tuesday.
Homer Bailey loses first start of season for Reds
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Homer Bailey made his first start of the season for the Reds, after being activated from the disabled list on Saturday.
Bailey was recovering from September finger surgery. He took the loss to St. Louis in his 2015 debut. Bailey allowed five runs on nine hits.
"At this point in time, I felt that Homer had the stuff to get it done," manager Bryan Price said to MLB.com. "[Carpenter] had hit the ball soft three times -- a soft single his first at-bat and two soft groundball infield outs. It felt like Homer earned that right to face that hitter right there."
He walked three and didn't strike out a batter. He threw 57 strikes in 92 pitches.
"It's definitely different. You can't prepare for that, especially with the limitations I've had," Bailey said. "I'm not going to use that as an excuse. Bryan asked me if I was good for the sixth. I told him I was. Then they had a few hits early in the counts. That was kind of the plan anyways, to try and get early outs. Knowing I didn't get the same base as everybody else did, I was trying to get early outs. Doing that, you have to be in the strike zone. That's the way it goes."
Bailey is next scheduled to start on Thursday at Milwaukee, against Kyle Lohse.
Reds activate Homer Bailey from DL, starting Saturday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) The Reds activated pitcher Homer Bailey from the disabled list, and he will make his season debut Saturday against the Cardinals.
Bailey has been recovering from a torn flexor tendon in his finger last September.
"It's great. It solidifies our rotation. We need him," manager Bryan Price said, per Fox Sports. "We need him to be a performer for us. We need him to give us an opportunity to be a better team in this division."
RHP Pedro Villarreal was optioned to Louisville to make room for Bailey on the roster.
Red excited to have pitcher Homer Bailey (elbow) return on Saturday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/17/15) Reds manager Bryan Price is excited to have starter Homer Bailey make his first MLB start since Aug. 7 on Saturday in St. Louis, reports MLB.com.|
"It's great. It solidifies our rotation. We need him," Price said. "We need him to be a performer for us. We need him to give us an opportunity to be a better team in this division."
Bailey shut down his season last year to undergo surgery to repair a torn tendon near his right elbow.

|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.
