Homer Bailey will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.
The Reds and Bailey considered going the rest and rehab route following a platelet-rich plasma injection, but it almost surely would have been simply delaying the inevitable. Bailey, who is in the second year of a six-year, $105 million contract, will now be sidelined likely until around midseason next year. Michael Lorenzen is filling his rotation spot for the time being.

Reds transferred RHP Homer Bailey from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Michael Lorenzen, who is replacing Bailey in the rotation. The Reds haven't committed to Bailey having Tommy John surgery yet, but it remains likely to happen. Obviously, he's now going to miss at least a couple months of action.

Homer Bailey is considering receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection in hopes that it will help his right elbow sprain.
It's a long shot that the PRP injection will solve the problem, but it would be hard to blame Bailey for considering that route first. Ultimately, the odds of him having Tommy John surgery, whether it be sooner or later, are quite high. Michael Lorenzen will be called up on Wednesday to take Bailey's spot in the rotation.
