Reds | Homer Bailey activated from DL

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 15:21:43 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, July 28. In a corresponding move, OF Kyle Waldrop was optioned to Class AAA Louisville.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey hasn't pitched since early last year and has made just 25 starts over the past three seasons. He should be owned in all cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but you should take a wait-and-see approach in most mixed leagues.

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) is expected to start Sunday, July 31, against the San Diego Padres assuming he has no setbacks in the next few days.

Reds | Homer Bailey returning Tuesday?

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:50:49 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) may rejoin the parent club as soon as Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: You can go ahead and pick Bailey up in deeper NL and mixed formats, but wait a bit before you activate him. Bailey hasn't pitched a big-league game in quite some time, so he will need to find his pitching legs.

Reds | Homer Bailey to pitch Monday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:46:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) will make another rehab start with Class AAA Louisville Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey made two starts in 2015 before he was injured and needed Tommy John surgery. Given that he pitched well for Cincy previously, including a no-hitter, Bailey should definitely be monitored in the majority of leagues. There's no guarantee he'll return favorable results for however much he pitches in 2016, but he's worth stashing now in cavernous mixed and NL leagues. Monitor his progress everywhere else.

Reds | Homer Bailey makes rehab start

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:50:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) pitched in a rehab game Wednesday, July 20, for Class AAA Louisville. He went 5 1/3 innings and surrendered five runs, throwing 53 of 83 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey is getting closer to making it back to the Reds after missing more than a year due to Tommy John surgery. He'll be someone to consider right away, considering the notable success he had in Cincinnati before going down with the injury, but probably should be scouted first by owners in case he endures struggles upon his return.

Reds | John Lamb demoted

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:37:00 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds have optioned SP John Lamb to Class AAA Louisville. In a corresponding move, OF Kyle Waldrop has been called up from Louisville. SP Homer Bailey (elbow) is expected to replace Lamb in the starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb was 1-7 with a 6.43 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 14 starts this season, with 31 walks and 58 strikeouts over 70 innings. The 26-year-old southpaw is not worth owning in any fantasy formats. Bailey is worth rostering in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, while Waldrop possesses little value since he is expected to serve as a bat off the bench.

Reds | Homer Bailey a few starts away

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 18:55:05 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) will make at least two more rehab starts before rejoining the team, and manager Bryan Price said Bailey felt "pretty good" following his rehab start Thursday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey could be back in the majors shortly after the All-Star break if all goes well. He is worth stashing in deeper mixed leagues and NL-only formats, but don't expect the Reds to rush him with their season going nowhere fast.

Reds | Homer Bailey expected to pitch Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 05:10:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) is scheduled to make a rehab appearance for Class AAA Louisville Saturday, July 2. He was able to pitch one inning during an appearance Monday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey is working his way back from elbow surgery but likely will need to make several more rehab appearances before he is able to return to the Reds. Bailey should be owned in NL-only leagues at this point but probably can be avoided in mixed leagues.

Reds | Homer Bailey to pitch in minors Monday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:52:08 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) will begin a new rehab assignment with Class AAA Louisville with a two-inning outing Monday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: If you have the luxury, Bailey remains a viable stash option in deep mixed and NL-only settings. However, with just two starts since 2014, you'll want to keep your expectations in check. Stay tuned for updates while Bailey works his way back.
