Homer Bailey continues pitching well

Homer Bailey put together a quality start Sunday afternoon in a 3-2 loss against the visiting Cardinals. He allowed a two-run homer to Harrison Bader but was otherwise solid, going 7 innings while allowing just 4 hits and 3 runs to bring his season ERA to 3.42.

Fantasy Impact

Bailey has primarily been a fantasy afterthought, and while the ceiling isn't exactly there anymore, he is suddenly worth monitoring in case he has bounced back to a fantasy relevant asset.

Homer Bailey solid in season opener

Homer Bailey pitched six innings on Friday against the Nationals allowing only one run on four hits and three walks. He also struck out three.

Fantasy Impact

Homer Bailey looked good in the first game of the season but came out a loser with lack of run support. The 11-year veteran took a tough loss against Max Scherzer and the Nationals, after the Reds offense was not able to bring any runs across home plate the entire game. Bailey has had a tough time staying healthy over the last three seasons, so it will be interesting to see if he can get back to 30 starts in his age-31 campaign. As of now, Bailey is only worth rostering in deep NL-only leagues.

Homer Bailey's Opening Day start pushed to Friday due to postponement

Homer Bailey will have to wait until Friday to make his Opening Day start for the Cincinnati Reds against Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals, as the Thursday, March 29 game has been postponed until Friday, March 30 due to impending inclement weather.

Fantasy Impact

Bailey is only owned in roughly 10% of leagues, but those 10% are likely eager to see their gamble pay off, as Bailey has not been a healthy and productive starter since 2014. Unfortunately, he will still have to face ace Max Scherzer and a deep Washington lineup on Friday.

Homer Bailey takes no decision Monday versus Brewers

Homer Bailey took a no decision Monday versus the Brewers. Bailey pitched six innings of three run baseball and struck out four. The Reds needed a walk off homerun from Billy Hamilton to secure a win as the Reds beat the Brewers 5-4.

Fantasy Impact

Homer Bailey had a decent outing Monday allowing three runs in six innings to the Brewers. With this outing Bailey has lowered his season ERA to 7.24. Bailey simply cannot be trusted right now as teams are pushing for a playoff position or have already started their playoffs. Stay clear of him for the rest of the season.

Homer Bailey picks up third win of the season

Homer Bailey picked up his third win of the season Tuesday against the Pirates. Bailey pitched six innings of one run ball. Bailey also struck out three and walked two. The Reds beat the Pirates 9-1 Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact

Homer Bailey does not have a lot of fantasy value at this time. From the eye ball test it is still noticeable that Bailey is trying to get back into the groove. Bailey has been injury plagued over the past couple of years so its understandable for an adjustment period to take place. At this time I would not roster him in leagues smaller than 14 teams.
