Reds announce they have transferred RHP Homer Bailey to 60-day Disabled List.

And that officially closes the door on Bailey's season. He's been dealing with forearm soreness caused by a problem with his flexor mass tendon and his most recent MRI did not show any improvement since he went on the DL. The Reds will get a roster spot back with the move, but now there's obvious concern that Bailey may need surgery.

Chris Heisey went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, and two runs scored int he Reds 3-2 victory over the Pirates on Sunday. 

Although Heisey left the yard twice today and was the entire offense for the Reds, he should be added to a roster with hopes of providing optimal production down the stretch. The two home runs today were his first hits since August 27th.

Aroldis Chapman struck out two batters and registered his 29th save of the season for the Reds in a win over the Pirates on Sunday. 

Chapman seems to be over the various ailments that have been nagging him of late, which is good news for Chapman owners. The flamethrower continues to be one of the game's elite and should be started with absolute confidence.

Johnny Cueto improved to 16-8 after allowing two runs on nine hits and a walk with six strikeouts over eight innings of work against the Pirates on Sunday. 

Cueto continues to be on of the game's best starting pitchers. He limited the Pirates to two runs despite surrendering nine hits to the Buccos. Cueto should be started with extreme confidence every time he toes the rubber.

Zack Cozart is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Sunday.

Cozart has gone 0-for-6 over the first two games of the series so he's just getting a break Saturday. Ramon Santiago will get the nod at short Sunday.

Devin Mesoraco is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Sunday.

After four-straight games behind the plat, Mesoraco will get the usual Sunday sit. While he's cooled off here in the second half, you're still going to want to use him as he could blow up at any moment.

Jay Bruce is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Sunday.

Bruce has gone 1-for-12 with eight strikeouts over his last three games. With lefty Francisco Liriano on the mound for the Pirates, Bruce will take a seat in favor of Chris Heisey.on Sunday.

Todd Frazier went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk against the Pirates on Saturday.

Frazier has now hit safely in five of his last six games and is batting .292 (7-for-24) with two home runs, four RBI and five runs scored in that span. He's already set career-highs in home runs, runs scored and stolen bases and is now just three RBI away from doing it there too. He has been an absolute fantasy stud for his owners this year and the fact that he's doing it at such a troubled spot like third base this year makes him that much more valuable.

Alfredo Simon fell to 13-9 after allowing three runs on four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over seven innings against the Pirates on Saturday.

Simon was going through a bit of a rough patch there for a few starts but seems to have corrected things with back-to-back quality starts here. Overall though, Simon's second half has not been strong at all as he's posted a 4.62 ERA with just a 32:20 K:BB over 50.2 innings. Hopefully you were wise enough to sell high on him back around the All Star break. He does get a nice favorable start against the Mets next, so perhaps he can make it three strong starts in a row.
