Bailey struck out three, ending the game with an 8.86 ERA and 2.04 WHIP on the season.

Aug. 1 8:45 PM PT9:45 PM MT10:45 PM CT11:45 PM ET23:45 ET3:45 GMT11:45 8:45 PM MST10:45 PM EST11:15 PM VEN7:45 UAE (+1)10:45 PM CT-Homer Bailey improved to 3-5, allowing one run on four hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-1 on Tuesday.

Analysis: It's the fourth time in Bailey's last six starts that he's allowed two runs or less while working at least six innings. The oft-injured hurler was hammered in those two other outings, so it's still difficult to gauge what to expect from him.

July 5 8:20 AM PT9:20 AM MT10:20 AM CT11:20 AM ET11:20 ET15:20 GMT23:20 8:20 AM MST10:20 AM EST10:50 AM VEN19:20 UAE10:20 AM CT-Homer Bailey improved to 1-2, allowing one run on eight hits in 6.0 innings, as the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Colorado Rockies 8-1 on Tuesday. Bailey struck out three, ending the game with a 12.66 ERA and 2.34 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Bailey was very efficient Tuesday, throwing 65 of 99 pitches for strikes to earn his first win since Aug. 12. Three surgeries have limited Bailey to just 11 starts dating from Sept. 5, 2014. Two of those outings came late last month at Washington and against Milwaukee after Bailey was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list. The games left Bailey with a 27.00 ERA as he worked a combined 4 2/3 innings and was strafed for 12 hits, three of them homers, and 14 runs.
June 29 8:07 PM PT9:07 PM MT10:07 PM CT11:07 PM ET23:07 ET3:07 GMT11:07 8:07 PM MST10:07 PM EST10:37 PM VEN7:07 UAE (+1)10:07 PM CT-Homer Bailey fell to 0-2, allowing six runs on six hits and two walks in 3.0 innings, as the Cincinnati Reds lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 11-3 on Thursday. Bailey struck out two, ending the game with a 27.00 ERA and 3.64 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Bailey made his second start since coming off the disabled list on Saturday. And, unfortunately for the Reds, the results were much the same. On Saturday, Bailey allowed eight earned runs in 1 2/3 innings of an 18-3 loss at Washington.
June 24 5:02 PM PT6:02 PM MT7:02 PM CT8:02 PM ET20:02 ET0:02 GMT8:02 5:02 PM MST7:02 PM EST7:32 PM VEN4:02 UAE (+1)7:02 PM CT-Homer Bailey fell to 0-1, allowing eight runs on six hits and three walks in 1.2 innings, as the Cincinnati Reds lost to the Washington Nationals 18-3 on Saturday. Bailey struck out two, ending the game with a 43.20 ERA and 5.40 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was Bailey's first appearance since Aug. 28, and it certainly didn't go well. Cincinnati activated the 31-year-old Bailey from the disabled list before the game. The right-hander had arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs in his right shoulder on Feb. 28.
Feb. 9 6:53 AM PT7:53 AM MT8:53 AM CT9:53 AM ET9:53 ET14:53 GMT22:53 7:53 AM MST9:53 AM EST10:23 AM VEN18:53 UAE8:53 AM CT-Bailey has been reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and will make his season debut Saturday at Washington.
Analysis: Bailey is finally ready to go after recovering from February's surgery to remove bone spurs in his troublesome right elbow. Cincinnati's expected ace was limited to six starts last season as he worked his way back from Tommy John surgery. He threw 91 pitches while allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings in Monday's rehab start for Triple-A Louisville.
