Reds shut down Homer Bailey for rest of season

The Cincinnati Reds have transferred starting pitcher Homer Bailey to the 60-day disabled list ending his season.

Bailey has been on the disabled list since mid-August with a strained flexor tendon in his pitching elbow. With Bailey not progressing as the team hoped and the Reds well out of playoff contention the team made the decision to end his season on Monday.

The Reds have Bailey under contract though 2019 with a mutual option for the 2020 season. He will finish the season 9-5 with a 3.71 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.
