Homer Bailey heading to the disabled list with elbow issue


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Reds pitcher Homer Bailey has been scratched from his Saturday start and will head to the disabled list, according to MLB.com.

Manager Bryan Price confirmed an earlier report, which suggested Bailey would hit the disabled list with a flexor tendon strain. The club expects to have Bailey back before the end of the season. 


Report: Homer Bailey DL-bound


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Reds right-handed starter Homer Bailey is headed to the disabled list, sources have told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Bailey has a flexor mass injury in his right arm that will not require surgery. He is expected to return at some point this season.

The starter who signed a six-year, $105 million contract during the offseason has recently lived up to that lucrative deal after a poor stretch. Only a lack of run support has limited him to a 2-1 record in his last seven starts. He has allowed just nine earned runs in 50 innings that that time to lower his ERA to 4.68 to 3.71.

Bailey had been scheduled to start Wednesday against Boston.


Homer Bailey also dealing with a neck issue


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Reds pitcher Homer Bailey has been dealing with a neck injury most of the season, according to MLB.com.

Bailey's next start was pushed back due to elbow soreness, but he also admitted he's dealing with a neck issue. "It's not just my elbow, but my neck, a bulging disk I've pitched with the whole year," Bailey said. Despite the issues, Bailey doesn't seem to think either injury is too serious.

Homer Bailey exits Thursday with knee pain


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Reds pitcher Homer Bailey pitched into the sixth inning in his start against the Cubs Thursday, but an apparent injury forced him out early in the sixth.

Bailey threw 71 pitches, but appeared to hurt himself while attempting to throw his 72nd. He came up hobbling on the pitch attempt, and apparently injured his knee. He exited the game immediately and was diagnosed with pain in his right patellar tendon.

Bailey ended up allowing three runs on two hits and a walk over his five innings of work. He struck out three batters while throwing 40 of his 71 pitches for strikes, and exited in line for a 4-3 before handing it off to the bullpen.

Bailey heads into the All-Star break with a 4.21 ERA and 8-5 record in 19 starts, and his next start is obviously up in the air. The Reds have yet to set their rotation, but the Cincinnati Enquirer reports he could get as many as 12 days off, based on how the schedule sets up.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The loss dropped Bailey to 8-5 this year. His next start is slated to come against Cubs.

Homer Bailey having issues against lefties


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) Reds pitcher Homer Bailey has had a tough time against left-handers this season.

Bailey's been roughly the same against righties, but lefties have really given him a hard time. Bailey has faced 97 left-handers this year. They've hit .365 against him, with five home runs. The 28-year-old has never experienced issues against lefties before, which could provide some hope that he'll figure things out eventually.
