Homer Bailey, Brandon Finnegan, Anthony DeSclafani Ready For Reds' Return

The Reds starting pitching is about tu get a huge shot in the arm this month.

Homer Bailey will start tomorrow for Pensacola on his way back to the Reds’ starting rotation.

Bailey, who had surgery in early February on his elbow, pitched three innings on June 4 at the Reds’ Goodyear, Arizona facility.

The complex will shut down for a few days for the amateur draft to be held on June 12.

Bailey will visit Double A in Pensacola to begin his inning build up.  He will need at least three starts in minor league games to return to the Reds’ starting rotation.

Brandon Finnegan will pitch Sunday in Pensacola.

“He will throw on Sunday in Pensacola. I think it’s realistic that we could see him by the end of this month,” Bryan Price said.

The third injured Reds’ starter Anthony DeSclafani is also working his way back.

“He’s behind. He initiated a throwing program in mid-May, and he may be approaching mound time by the end of June. That’s bullpen and live batting practice. I think a realistic time for him is August,” Price said.
