Homer Bailey (biceps) not expected back

Bailey has been throwing off a mound and is feeling good, but it's been four weeks since he's last pitched and he's running out of time to make it back. "If there’s more time left in the season, he’d go someplace and pitch in a game somewhere (in the minor leagues) and come back here and be activated," Price said. "We can’t really provide him with that opportunity unless we want to send him to Arizona. That … doesn’t make sense at this point in time." With Bailey looking like a no-go for the final week, he'll finish the season having posted a 6.65 ERA over just six starts.

    Bailey's (biceps) status still undetermined

    Bailey felt fine during a lengthy bullpen session Tuesday, but the club still hasn't decided when or if he'll rejoin the rotation. "If you haven’t seen him on the mound in Milwaukee and we’ve gone through that series, and I can’t say the first day in St. Louis that we have him scheduled for a start or two, I would say it would be unlikely that he would make a start or two the rest of the year," Price said.

    Homer Bailey (biceps) throws 'pen session

    The workout was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but Bailey felt so good after his last throwing session that he asked to move it up a day. The right-hander tossed about 30 warmup pitches before facing four batters who stood in the box but did not swing. It was almost like a simulated game. Bailey, out since August 28 with biceps tendinitis, is aiming to make one more start for the Reds before the end of the 2016 regular season.

    Bailey (biceps) to throw another bullpen Wed.

    The Reds will make a call from there about whether he's ready to make another start. Bailey, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, has been out since August 28 with biceps tendinitis.

    Homer Bailey (biceps) throws bullpen session

    It was his first mound workout in two weeks and it apparently went well. Bailey is scheduled for another bullpen session Friday and could then advance to facing live hitters. He may have another start or two in him before the 2016 season comes to a close.

    Homer Bailey (bicep) to throw off mound Tues.

    Bailey is ready to resume mound work after a two-week period of rest, rehab, and long-tossing. The right-hander could make a start or two before the end of the 2016 season, though he should probably go on being ignored in standard fantasy leagues. Bailey has a 6.65 ERA in six starts since returning from Tommy John surgery. He is owed $19 million in 2017.

    Bailey (biceps) not throwing off mound yet

    Bailey started playing catch at the beginning of the week and has progressed to long-tossing, but he still needs to make some progress before returning to the mound. The Reds could wind up shutting him down if he's inactive too long, although they're not at that point yet. Manager Bryan Price also shot down the possibility of Bailey returning as a reliever. "Homer is a starter," Price said. "I don’t see us using him as a relief pitcher."

    Homer Bailey (biceps) plays catch

    It's the first time he's thrown since being diagnosed with biceps tendinitis a week ago. When Bailey will return to the Reds' rotation is still up in the air, but the club hopes to get him back sometime this month. He's posted a 6.65 ERA in six starts since completing his rehab from Tommy John surgery.

    Bailey (biceps) to miss next turn in rotation

    But the hope is he won't be out much longer than that. Bailey allowed four runs on five hits in just one inning of work Sunday against the Diamondbacks and was diagnosed later that day with right biceps tendinitis. He has a 6.65 ERA through six starts in his return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

    Homer Bailey dealing with biceps tendinitis

    Bailey left Sunday's debacle of a start after just one inning, and now we know it wasn't just ineffectiveness that led to the early hook. The good news is that his elbow feels fine, though the Reds may opt to skip his next start just to err on the side of caution.
