Reds starter Johnny Cueto won't appeal his seven-game suspension stemming from this week's fight against the Cardinals, and Homer Baily will come off the disabled list to take his scheduled start Sunday against the Marlins.

Manager Dusty Baker seemed to be sending a message through comments to reporters that Cueto should not regard the suspension as a vacation.

"With our pitching situation, the way things line up, it will be better if he misses one start and he'll have one extra day from [when] ordinarily he would start," Baker said. "So maybe this will make him even better and stronger. He can train, train and more train."

Bailey (pictured being greeted by Mister Redlegs), the promising right-hander whose career has gotten off the a frustrating start, has been on the disabled list since late May with shoulder inflammation. He has looked good in four rehab appearances (three starts), going 2-1 with a 1.44 ERA.

Cueto's suspension will buy struggling rookie Mike Leake another start Saturday after a bad stretch had the Reds considering taking him out of the rotation. For a while it looked like Bailey would have to come back from the DL as a reliever, then it looked like the Reds were lining him up to replace Leake. The Reds will be watching both Leake and Bailey closely this weekend.
