Reds SP Homer Bailey to undergo Tommy John surgery
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/1/15) Reds pitcher Homer Bailey will undergo Tommy John surgery, the team announced Friday. Bailey, who was originally placed on the disabled list last week with an elbow injury, will miss the rest of the 2015 season.
“After consulting with (team medical director) Dr. Kremchek and other orthopaedic surgeons, we determined the best option with the most predictable outcome is to surgically repair the ligament,” general manager Walt Jocketty said. “It does not appear the injury is at all related to the right elbow flexor mass injury Homer sustained late last season.”
Bailey's 2014 season was cut short in August when he went down with the elbow flexor injury. He returned to the Reds' rotation on April 18 and made two starts before suffering a right elbow strain.
Kremchek will perform the Tommy John surgery next Friday in Cincinnati. Typical recovery time for pitchers having Tommy John surgery is 12-18 months. The team expects Bailey to return to the rotation during the 2016 season.
Reds place Manny Parra (neck) on DL, move Bailey to 60-day DL
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) The Reds announced Wednesday they moved starting pitcher Homer Bailey from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for starting pitcher Michael Lorenzen, who was called up from Triple-A Louisville to start against Milwaukee.
"We'll explore rehab and all options before deciding on potential surgery," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said about Bailey, per MLB Network Radio.
The Reds also announced reliever Manny Parra was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained neck. The left-hander is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA in seven appearances (3 1/3 innings).
"It comes and goes. Hopefully with some work and getting on a regimen, I'll be able to prevent it from happening," said Parra, who can be activated May 9, per MLB.com. "I don't expect it to be any longer than it has to. I'm feeling a lot better today, but we have to make sure we have enough arms."
Reds considering elbow surgery for SP Homer Bailey
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey may require surgery on his pitching elbow, manager Bryan Price told reporters, per the Associated Press on Tuesday. Bailey was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow sprain and is not expected to be pitching in the near future, Price said on Monday.
A treatment that consists of platelet-rich plasma injections and rest is also another possibility for Bailey, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.
"A lot of times, you want to kick the tires and make sure," Price said. "Not everything needs to be corrected with surgery. There are other ways to do things.
"So there are some options out there beyond surgery. That being said, that would be one of the options."
Bailey signed a six-year, $105 million contract before the start of the 2014 season. He is 9-6 with a 3.84 ERA in 25 starts since signing an extension.
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.

|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.
