|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.

(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 |

(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.

(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.
|Homer Bailey not cleared to throw after MRI |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/27/14) The Reds have not cleared pitcher Homer Bailey to resume throwing after learning the results of a recent MRI Wednesday, MLB.com reports.
"Unfortunately, it's not healing the way we thought it would," head trainer Paul Lessard said. "He's unfortunately very frustrated, [but] I have to think about his arm for the future as well, not just the next four weeks. We're trying to figure out what's the best thing for him."
Bailey has been sidelined since Aug. 8 with a strained flexor mass tendon. He could have a second PRP injection to help his healing, though that would delay his throwing scheduled by another week.
|Homer Bailey is exactly why you should never give up on elite talent. Rushed to the big leagues as a 21-year-old in 2007, he didn't begin to make the most of his abilities until 2012 and continued to build on them in 2013, throwing his second no-hitter in as many years. And it wasn't all downhill from there. He actually had a lower ERA in 15 starts after the no-hitter (3.40) than in 16 before it (3.88). He didn't get the attention he deserves because of an 11-12 record, but among the numbers that matter most, he was the superior pitcher to teammate Mat Latos, who's sure to go earlier in Fantasy, nearly equaling him innings with a lower ERA and higher strikeout rate. Of course, he's not quite as established as Latos, but given his trajectory and ability to hit 98 mph with his fastball, Bailey may still have more in store. He's worth targeting among the top 25 starting pitchers on Draft Day.
