Reds’ Homer Bailey to have surgery, miss 2015 season

As expected, Homer Bailey’s 2015 season is over and he will undergo ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction in his right elbow, better known as “Tommy John” surgery.

Reds medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek will perform the surgery next Friday in Cincinnati. Recovery from Tommy John surgery typically takes one year, meaning the Reds expect Bailey to return sometime next season.

Bailey, who turns 29 on Sunday, missed the end of 2014 with a right elbow flexor mass injury and had surgery to repair that injury last September. The Reds say the two injuries are unrelated….

Bailey signed a six-year deal worth $105 million last February.

Bailey was 9-5 with a 3.71 ERA in 23 starts in 2014 before his injury and made two starts for the Reds this season before going on the disabled list.

Homer Bailey of Cincinnati Reds could have elbow surgery

Reds right-hander Homer Bailey may require surgery on his pitching elbow, a significant setback to a team already struggling with its staff.

Cincinnati is considering various options for treating an injured ligament in Bailey’s right elbow, including surgery. Manager Bryan Price said Tuesday that no decision had been made. The Reds could wait and see if the elbow heals with treatment.
