Bailey (5-8) allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over 5.2 innings to earn the win Friday against the Pirates. Bailey held the Pirates bats in check while benefiting from four solo homers, as he left the contest with a 4-1 lead hison his way to earning fifth victory of the season. Although he'll have the occasional solid outing, his 6.86 ERA makes him a player who's extremely risky to use in the fantasy playoffs. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Cardinals.
Bailey (4-8) allowed five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five across six innings to take the loss Saturday against the Mets. Bailey went into the sixth inning with a 2-1 deficit before allowing one run in the sixth and two more in the seventh, leading to his eighth defeat of the campaign. This was the first time in three outings that he failed to post a quality start, and although he has a 7.26 ERA, he could be a useful fantasy option based on matchups. He'll make his next start Friday against the Pirates.
Bailey allowed three runs on six hits while striking out four batters over six innings Monday against the Brewers. He didn't factor into the decision. Bailey has now put together two consecutive quality starts, though he's compiled just five strikeouts over 12 innings during that span. The 31-year-old owns a 7.24 ERA through 14 starts this season, and his inconsistency coupled with his low upside make him an unappealing option down the stretch. He's scheduled to make his next start against the Mets on Saturday.
Bailey (4-7) held the Mets to two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings Wednesday, only to be stuck with the loss. He struck out just a single batter and hit one with a pitch. The Mets potted a pair of first-inning runs against Bailey, and that turned out to be all the game's scoring. This marks Bailey's first quality start since Aug. 1, and he'd put up horrendous stats in the interim -- a 9.53 ERA, 2.24 WHIP and 20:15 K:BB in 17 innings. On the bright side, it's nice to see him looking healthy after shoulder irritation ended his last start prematurely. Even so, it's hard to imagine starting him in fantasy right now, considering that Wednesday's outing is about as good as it gets for him at this point.
Bailey (shoulder) is officially listed as the starter for Wednesday's game against the Mets. Bailey will take the mound after getting his start pushed back due to right shoulder irritation. The right-hander left his previous outing against the Cubs on Aug. 22 after tossing three scoreless innings, but completed a bullpen session Friday and appears close to full health going into Wednesday's affair.
