    Player Outlook

    Homer Bailey took longer than expected to return from Tommy John surgery, and then his 2016 season ended prematurely due to biceps tendinitis. Before the tendinitis kicked in, he had two encouraging starts, striking out 17 Brewers and Marlins over 11 innings. In his six starts upon his return, Bailey's fastball averaged 92.7 mph, slower than in his pre-injury form, but faster than when he was pitching hurt in 2015. The Reds have reserved a rotation spot for Bailey -- and well they should, given that there's still four years left on his $105 million contract signed in February 2014. Unfortunately, he won't toe the rubber for Cincinnati on Opening Day after undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow in February, so those who take a flier on Bailey will probably want to wait and see if he's closer to his old self following another operation before deploying him in active lineups.

    • Reds' Homer Bailey: Sidelined until mid-June
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bailey (elbow) will not be ready to return the majors until mid-June, WCPO.com's John Fay reports. Not much has changed for Bailey during his rehab process, as he returns from forearm surgery. He began throwing again about three weeks ago, and there have not been any setbacks. The 30-year-old is currently on the 60-day DL and has not pitched since Aug. 7.

    • Reds' Homer Bailey: Will play catch Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bailey (elbow) is scheduled to play catch Monday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. It's the first throwing session for Bailey since he required surgery in February to remove bone spurs from his elbow. The Reds have already shuttled Bailey to the 60-day DL and aren't expected to have him back until June, so the right-hander is still in the very initial stages of the recovery process.

    • Reds' Homer Bailey: Heads to 60-day DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bailey (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. The Reds needed a 40-man roster spot for recently-claimed Nefi Ogando, and given the fact that Bailey will be out until June, he was an easy choice to boot from the 40-man. The former first rounder underwent elbow surgery earlier in February to remove bone spurs, and although it's unclear how this procedure will impact his performance upon his return, it's tough to rely on him much until he can prove he can stay healthy.

    • Reds' Homer Bailey: Hopes to return in June
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bailey (elbow) said that he hopes to get back to action at the start of June, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The oft-injured starter recently underwent another elbow surgery, and it now seems to be a bit clearer when he'll return to the Reds rotation. This is crushing news for Cincinnati, as now they'll have to lean on Anthony DeSclafani and Brandon Finnegan to anchor the rotation ahead of many unproven options and some older alternatives. A firmer timetable for Bailey's return will likely come as the season progresses.
