Reds place Homer Bailey on DL with sprained shoulder

UPDATE: Sure enough, the Reds put him on the DL. Mike Leake is taking his place.

==========

Homer Bailey complained of muscle spasms in his shoulder after leaving yesterday’s start and John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that he’s been diagnosed with a sprained shoulder.

Reds trainer Paul Lessard told Fay that no surgery will be required and an MRI exam came back “OK.”

However, it sounds like Bailey will probably be placed on the disabled list, which is where he spent the first five weeks of the season with a shoulder impingement.

In between the injuries Bailey built on a solid 2010 showing by going 3-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 22/5 K/BB ratio in 30 innings.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
