Reds | Homer Bailey has torn UCL

Fri, 01 May 2015 11:25:26 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and will undergo Tommy John surgery. He's expected to return during the 2016 season. Dr. Timothy Kremchek will perform the surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Drop Bailey in all single-year fantasy formats. Tony Cingrani may be the Reds' best bet for a long-term rotation spot to replace Bailey, and he could be useful if you're hurting for rotation arms in deep mixed or NL-only leagues.

Reds | Homer Bailey done for year

Fri, 01 May 2015 11:14:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) will have Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the season. He will return next year.

Fantasy Tip: You can now safely drop Bailey in all single-year formats, and he'll come at an extremely cheap injury discount in 2016 drafts. Michael Lorenzen ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was unsuccessful in his major league debut filling in for Bailey this week, and he might not be the short-term solution for the rotation. Tony Cingrani has the most upside and may be the best long-term solution this year. If you're searching for rotation help in deep mixed leagues, he's worth a speculative add.

Reds | Homer Bailey to 60-day DL

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 07:21:26 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: The move likely means Bailey will miss most of the first half, if not longer. Stash him on the DL if you can, but dropping him altogether is an option.

Reds | Homer Bailey to opt for injections?

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:41:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) could have his sprained elbow ligament treated via platelet-rich injections, according to manager Bryan Price, Tuesday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey was likely dropped in all leagues but this news isn't enough to warrant a roster add. Johnny Cueto is the only Reds' starter worth owning in mixed leagues, while Mike Leake and Anthony DeSclafani should be streamed for favorable matchups.

Reds | Surgery for Homer Bailey?

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:19:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) may need surgery on his pitching elbow, and the team is considering several options for treating his injured ligament in his right arm. Either way, Bailey will miss serious time recovering from his injury.

Fantasy Tip: If you aren't using Bailey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in one of your DL slots, he's not worth taking up anymore roster space. Surgery would likely be a Tommy John procedure, which would end his year and make him unavailable for the start of the 2016 season.

Reds | Homer Bailey on the DL

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:38:08 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) was placed on the disabled list with a right elbow ligament sprain Monday, April 27, and P Carlos Contreras was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move. The DL stint is retroactive to Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) pitched exactly 5 2/3 innings in both of his starts after starting the season late due elbow issues. His last start was more encouraging, as he gave up just two runs while walking one and striking out three. Now he has another setback that will test his owner's patience in shallow mixed leagues. Raisel Iglesias, who started in Cincy's rotation, might be the best candidate to replace Bailey in the Reds' rotation. He'll be a low-end starter at FantasyScore that is only worth consideration in the right matchups.

Reds | Homer Baily needs to build endurance

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 15:11:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey was physically fine in his second start against the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, April 23, but manager Bryan Price said Bailey needs to build his endurance up. Bailey allowed seven hits and two earned runs while walking one and striking out three in 5 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) looked much better in his second start of the year, albeit against an injury-depleted Brewers lineup Thursday. It's still encouraging progress, though. However, you'd be smart to continue avoiding him at FantasyScore until he's up to speed.

Reds | Homer Bailey expected to start Sat.

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:52:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (forearm) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, April 15, and he is expected to start Saturday, April 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Since the start of the 2012 season Bailey is just 4-5 with a 4.52 ERA in 11 starts against the Cardinals with an opponent batting average of .301, highest of any team he has faced (min. 12 innings). FantasyScore owners would be well advised to avoid this difficult matchup.

Reds | Homer Bailey to debut Saturday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 14:41:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (forearm) is set to make his 2015 season debut against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) should be avoided for his first start of the season at FantasyScore against a very capable Cardinals lineup.

Reds | Homer Bailey to rehab Sunday

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 14:22:49 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (forearm) will make a rehab start Sunday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) will need at least two rehab starts before he can make his 2015 debut for Cincinnati. He should be stashed on a DL spot in standard leagues. You may want to avoid Bailey for at least his first MLB start as he returns from right forearm surgery.
