FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Reds placed Homer Bailey (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list.

Bailey has a flexor mass injury, which sounds awful but at least does not require surgery. He will likely return this season, though expectations should be held in check as he will prolly not be activated until sometime in September. Until then, the Reds will be forced to scramble to locate a serviceable arm in the minors to fill the vacant rotation slot.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
