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
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
