Bailey gave up seven runs (five earned) on 10 hits and one walk while striking out zero in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.
It's hard to have a worse fantasy line than Bailey put forth, as he torpedoed ratios without providing a single strikeout. He now has an 8.37 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 33.1 innings, and it's hard to make a case for him being useful in any format at the moment.
Maxwell was a late addition to the lineup for Wednesday's game against Toronto, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Maxwell was added to the lineup after originally receiving a day off, while Josh Phegley was scratched from Wednesday's card. The 26-year-old will set up in his usually spot behind the dish, but will bat eighth in the order as he switches directly into Phegley's position.
Severino gave up two runs, both unearned, on three hits and two walks while striking out nine over seven innings Wednesday against the Reds to improve to 7-4 on the season.
The young righty continues to roll, notching his fourth straight start of seven innings, allowing four earned runs and striking out 31 over 28 innings during that stretch. He ranks in the top 10 among qualified big-league starters in ERA (eighth), WHIP (sixth) and strikeouts (eighth), so it's hard to say he has been anything other than a true SP1 this year in mixed leagues. Severino lines up for two starts next week, first at home against the Tigers and then on the road against the Indians.
Concussions have plagued Reed throughout his career, including last season, when he was diagnosed with his fifth known such head injury. Later, an AC joint separation in his left shoulder forced another absence, marking the 18th DNP of his four years as a professional. The current ailment hasn't been revealed, but kicking off training camp on the PUP list is an ominous sign for the premier tight end's upcoming campaign.
Phegley was scratched from Wednesday's lineup prior to the contest against Toronto, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Phegley was originally plugged into the lineup at the catcher's position, but will head back to the bench while Bruce Maxwell takes over for Wednesday's affair. The A's have yet to provide a reason for Phegley's removal, although manager Bob Melvin will likely discuss his absence if the catcher is suffering from an ailment or was involved in a trade.
