UPDATE: Bailey exits early with sore shoulder

“They saw me trying to stretch out after (Shin-Soo) Choo’s triple,” he
said. “I wanted to stay in. They weren’t going to let that happen.”

3:44pm: Reds starter Homer Baily left Sunday’s game after just 2.1 innings due to tightness in his right shoulder, according to MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon.

The Reds are in the midst of a 20-game stretch without a day off and this injury may throw both the rotation and bullpen out of whack.  Bailey had strung together two impressive starts heading into Sunday’s action, but is still just 1-2 with a 5.51 ERA on the year for the NL Central-leading Reds.  He fired his first career shutout on May 12 against the Pirates.

Micah Owings replaced Bailey in the third inning and could be in line for a start later this week if the Reds don’t want to dig into their minor league system for a spot starter.  Aroldis Chapman has a blister and wouldn’t be an option anyway, in case some folks are thinking big.

    And the rightie, the young pitcher,
    The manager is still at large
    Violated with high pitch counts –
    Dusty, how much did you charge?
