The Reds are calling up Homer Bailey for this week’s road trip to Philly and Florida. The Bats pulled him in the third inning of his start today to give him the news and the rest. He’ll take the mound on Thursday against the Phils, replacing Fogg Hat as the 5th starter in the rotation. Reds are looking to call up the rest of the Bats over the next month or so, replacing all the dipsticks they picked up in the off season.
Let’s hope Homer’s stuff gets cranked up a notch Thursday… he hasn’t exactly been lights out in Louisville during his past few starts. He’ll be facing a Phillies team that can absolutely rake… in a ballpark made just for rakers.
