Latest Update Homer Bailey gives up 3 home runs in no-decision Tuesday Wed Jul, 23, 01:10 AM
Has a bulldog mentality on the mound. His mid-90's heat is nasty, especially when combined with his tremendous curveball. Is at his best when pitching low in the strike zone. Can be dominant at times.
Flaws: : His control is still spotty at times, and he also can surrender a few too many taters. Can be a bit maddening for managers and pitching coaches, since he isn't always as good as his stuff suggests he is.
Rostering a pitcher with the first name of Homer is about as wise as rostering a closer with the name Balfour. Bailey's next start will come at home on Monday against the DBacks so if you do continue to own him please sit him.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Bailey left his last start after just 71 pitches when he strained his knee, but the Reds have downplayed the injury the entire time. The rest he got over the All Star break seems to have done the trick and he should be ready to roll next week. Of course, we're hoping to only see the Bailey we saw in June and early July as opposed to the one who posted a 6.15 ERA in April.Analyst: Howard Bender
When asked about his knee Thursday after he found out there was no structural damage in his knee, Bailey said that he expected to make his next start. He's now woken up Friday feeling just as good and feels the same way.Analyst: Howard Bender
Well that's great news for Bailey owners who were left to worry for several hours after he left Thursday's start. There were questions as to what the injury was, then we found out it was the knee, but now we've learned that it was only a slight strain. Alls well in Bailey-land, folks.Analyst: Howard Bender
