The Reds will move right-hander Homer Bailey to the 60-day disabled list tomorrow, which means that his season is officially over.
Bailey hasn’t pitched since August 7 due to a flexor mass strain in his right elbow. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty told C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer that he’s currently mulling over whether to have surgery.
“Not yet, but probably we’ll make a decision this week,” Jocketty said. “We did determine that he shouldn’t pitch the rest of the year.”
Bailey signed a six-year, $105 million extension with the Reds in February and got off to poor start this season, but he was much better after May and ended up with a 3.71 ERA and 124/45 K/BB ratio over 145 2/3 innings. He’ll hope for better health and consistency in year two of the deal.
