Reds place Homer Bailey on the disabled list

1 Comment

Initially the Reds pushed back Homer Bailey’s turn in the rotation while hoping he could avoid a stint on the disabled list, but now they’ve placed him on the shelf with a flexor mass strain in his elbow.

Despite getting off to a poor start Bailey is having a pretty typical season in the first year of a $105 million contract extension, posting a 3.71 ERA in 23 starts with a 124/45 K/BB ratio in 146 innings.

He started 33 and 32 games while logging 208 and 209 innings during the previous two seasons.
