Reds' Bailey makes his way back as reliever

CBSSports.com wire reports

CINCINNATI -- The Reds will see if right-hander Homer Bailey can pitch out of the bullpen.

The former first-round draft pick is on a rehabilitation assignment in the minors, working his way back from shoulder inflammation. He's been on the disabled list since May 24.

Bailey currently is pitching with Triple-A Louisville, where he has a 2.50 ERA in three starts. Pitching coach Bryan Price says his next appearance will be as a reliever. The Reds have plenty of starting pitchers, so they're trying to figure out if Bailey -- a starter throughout his career -- could help the bullpen.

Right-hander Aaron Harang threw a simulated game on Tuesday without problem and could start a rehab assignment over the weekend. He's been sidelined by back spasms since July 6.
