  • Reds' Brandon Bailey: Resumes throwing off flat ground

    Bailey (elbow) announced in early January via his personal Twitter account that he resumed throwing off flat ground.

    Bailey was cleared to throw approximately 11 months after undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career in February 2021. Since he isn't a member of the Reds' 40-man roster, Bailey is taking part in spring training with the rest of Cincinnati's minor leaguers, but he's unlikely to be cleared for game action until later in the spring or early in the summer. Once he's deemed 100 percent healthy, Bailey will likely settle into the rotation at Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' Brandon Bailey: Non-tendered, re-signs with Reds

    Bailey (elbow) was non-tendered by the Reds on Tuesday, but he re-signed with the team on a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Bailey missed the 2021 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery in February, and he'll enter spring training as a non-roster invitee. It's unclear where the right-hander currently stands in his recovery, but he may not be fully ramped up for Opening Day.

  • Reds' Brandon Bailey: Heads to 60-day IL

    The Reds placed Bailey (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Monday.

    Bailey underwent Tommy John surgery in February and will miss the entire 2021 season. His placement on the 60-day IL opened up a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Cam Bedrosian.

  • Reds' Brandon Bailey: Undergoes surgery Friday

    Bailey (elbow) announced on his personal Twitter feed that he underwent successful Tommy John surgery Friday.

    Bailey was unable to work out at camp this year due to his elbow issue, and he underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career Friday. He'll be sidelined for the entire 2021 campaign as a result, and he'll now shift his focus toward recovering ahead of a potential return in early 2022.

  • Reds' Brandon Bailey: Set for Tommy John surgery

    Bailey will undergo Tommy John surgery next week and miss the entirety of the 2021 season, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    The 26-year-old was reportedly dealing with an undisclosed injury earlier in February, and he'll end up requiring Tommy John surgery. Bailey made his big-league debut with the Astros in 2020 and gave up two earned runs on six hits over 7.1 innings, but he won't see game action again until 2022.

  • Reds' Brandon Bailey: Delayed to start camp

    Bailey is battling an undisclosed injury and isn't expected to be ready for the start of camp, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Without specifics on the injury, it's difficult to say whether or not Bailey is at risk of missing time to start the regular season. The 26-year-old righty recorded a 2.45 ERA in his 7.1-inning debut for the Astros last season before coming over in a November trade, though his 4:3 K:BB paints a less optimistic picture.

  • Reds' Brandon Bailey: Dealt to Cincinnati

    Bailey was traded from the Astros to the Reds on Friday in exchange for cash.

    The Astros probably weren't keen on keeping Bailey on the 40-man roster, while the Reds saw a player they liked who they could easily acquire. The 26-year-old righty pitched 7.1 innings of relief for the Astros this season but had primarily been a starter in the minors, so it's unclear what role the Reds have in mind for him.

  • Astros' Brandon Bailey: Optioned to alternate training site

    Bailey was optioned to the Astros' alternate training site Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Bailey was effective out of the Astros' bullpen during his time on the active roster, posting a 2.45 ERA and 4:3 K:BB over 7.1 innings across five appearances. However, he'll continue his work with the alternate squad after Joe Biagini (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Astros' Brandon Bailey: Added to active roster

    Bailey had his minor-league contract selected Thursday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    Bailey was selected by the Orioles in the Rule 5 draft during the winter but was returned to Houston a week before MLB paused spring training. The right-hander will open the season with the big club after a strong showing during camp, likely in a low-leverage mop-up role. Bailey posted a 3.30 ERA and 103:41 K:BB across 92.2 innings at Double-A last year.

  • Astros' Brandon Bailey: Makes Houston's player pool

    Bailey was added to the Astros' 60-man player pool Sunday.

    Bailey is a 25-year-old starting pitcher that was selected by the Orioles in the Rule 5 draft during the winter. Baltimore returned him to Houston a week before MLB paused spring training. The right-hander posted a 3.30 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 103:41 K:BB over 22 appearances (17 starts) for Double-A Corpus Christi last season.

  • Astros' Brandon Bailey: Returning to Astros

    Bailey was returned by the Orioles to the Astros on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Baltimore selected Bailey with the second pick of the Rule 5 draft in December, but after a few weeks of spring training the O's decided he wasn't worth retaining on the major-league roster. The 25-year-old spent 2019 at Double-A Corpus Christi and had a 3.30 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 103:41 K:BB over 92.2 innings.

  • Orioles' Brandon Bailey: Snagged by Orioles

    The Orioles selected Bailey with the second pick of the Rule 5 draft.

    A 25-year-old righty who was drafted by the A's in 2016 and then acquired by the Astros a couple years ago, Bailey logged a 3.30 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 103:41 K:BB in 92.2 innings at Double-A. He is not quite ready to work as a big-league starter, but that's something he has in common with a lot of Orioles pitchers. Look for him to work mostly as a reliever before getting sent to Triple-A in 2021.
