Bailey has second straight highly successful rehab start
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Homer Bailey is inching his way back to being a member of the Reds starting rotation after he followed up a very good rehab start for Class Double-A Pensacola last Friday with an even better outing on Wednesday for the Class A Dayton Dragons.
Bailey, who made just eight starts for the Reds in the last two seasons combined due to elbow issues, didn't allow a run and allowed just one hit in six innings to help Dayton down Great Lakes, 4-2.
Bailey didn't walk a batter and struck out six. He threw 76 pitches, 54 of which were for strikes.
In his outing on Friday for Pensacola Bailey threw five innings, allowed just three hits, walked one and out five. The righty threw 64 pitches, 42 of which were strikes.
He will likely make his next rehab start for Class Triple-A Louisville and could join the Reds later this month.
Bailey won 33 games for the Reds from 2012-’14.
