Reds activate Bailey, option Smith to minors


CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds have optioned right-handed reliever Jordan Smith to Triple-A Louisville to open a roster spot for Homer Bailey.

Bailey was activated off the disabled list on Thursday and started the final game of a series against the Houston Astros. The right-hander has been sidelined since he developed tightness in his pitching shoulder during spring training.

Smith allowed runs in four straight appearances. He had no record and a 5.29 ERA in 14 appearances overall.
