We have no details at all. All we know is that Homer Bailey just left the Reds-Cubs game rather abruptly. And with an injury to a body part which was not immediately clear, which makes it kind of scary. The real-time descriptions:
Bailey appeared to hurt himself throwing a pitch. He’s coming out. #reds

Uh oh. Homer Bailey coming out… was in his delivery and just dropped the ball right to the ground. No warmups afterwards or anything. — Matthew Pouliot (@matthewpouliot) July 10, 2014
Bailey did point down at the mound, like something on his plant leg was the problem. But he didn’t favor anything as he walked off. — Matthew Pouliot (@matthewpouliot) July 10, 2014
Homer Bailey out in the sixth inning after a messy-looking delivery. Heading straight for the clubhouse. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 10, 2014
I would think, from the body language, more likely that it’s a back problem for Bailey.

We’ll hear soon enough. But Bailey being out is not something the Reds, who have been surging of late and are now in spitting distance of the Brewers, need at all.
