For now the Reds are saying it’s not a major issue, but Homer Bailey‘s next turn in the starting rotation has been pushed back from Wednesday to Saturday because of elbow soreness.

According to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com manager Bryan Price “did not believe this was a serious issue for Bailey” and “wanted to give him the extra four days as a precaution.”

Bailey had a rough first two months of the season after signing a $105 million contract extension in February, carrying a 5.04 ERA into June, but since June 1 he’s got a 2.66 ERA in 12 starts and his overall numbers this season are in line with his career norms.
