Fantasy Analysis | 1397595500
Don't be rash with Homer Bailey
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

If you own Homer Bailey, your team probably stinks right now. You drafted him as a mainstay for your pitching staff, and he's done his best to bury you in his first three starts.

But just because he's put you in a hole doesn't mean you have to climb in. Bench him if you must, but don't trade him for 50 cents on the dollar or, worse yet, drop him. The season isn't even 10 percent over. The possibility of him getting back on track and delivering the numbers everyone expected is still more likely than not.

When a player underachieves this time of year, the damage isn't in the numbers he puts up but the panic he creates. Last year, it was Matt Cain with a 6.49 ERA in April. Those who unloaded him then felt pretty silly when he compiled a 3.43 ERA the rest of the way.

Bailey is throwing as hard as ever and hasn't lost sight of the strike zone. He's just getting hit harder than usual. It's mainly his curveball, a pitch that requires some finesse. Finesse comes through repetition. Repetition comes in spring training. Bailey missed much of spring training with a groin injury, throwing only nine innings. He's behind, and with his specific arsenal, it shows.

Pitchers who rely heavily on curveballs are more likely to struggle in April for that reason. We've never seen it from Bailey before, but because nothing else is amiss, you can assume it's to blame.

Homer Bailey tallies nine strikeouts, four homers Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds pitcher Homer Bailey gave up five earned runs on eight hits in five innings while striking out nine and surrendering four home runs in his team's suspended game against the Pirates Monday.

Bailey, who won't factor into the decision once the game is completed Tuesday, helped to set a Great American Ball Park record when the 10th home run of the game was smashed in the sixth inning. It's been a rough start to the season for the Reds starter, who owns an 8.16 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings over three starts. He's scheduled to square off against the Cubs Sunday.

Homer Bailey surrenders four runs in no-decision Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds pitcher Homer Bailey didn't factor into the decision in his team's 7-5 loss to the Cardinals Tuesday after giving up four earned runs on nine hits and two walks in five innings while striking out five.

It was the second straight mediocre start for Bailey, who gave up four runs in 4 1/3 innings in his debut. He takes a 7.71 ERA and 8:5 K:BB ratio into Monday's start against the Pirates.

Bailey yielded four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three over 4 1/3 innings pitched. 51 of his 93 pitches were called for strikes. He'll make his second start of the season Tuesday in St. Louis.
