Bailey is the last Reds player left in arbitration, with a hearing scheduled for Friday in Florida. Bailey says he doesn't own a suit and would have to buy one if there's no deal by then. But he expects to have one in place in the next few days. He wouldn't confirm reports that the sides are negotiating on a six-year deal.
Analysis: Bailey went 11-12 last season with a 3.49 ERA. He also threw his second no-hitter in two seasons. The 27-year-old pitcher made $5,350,000 last season. He asked for $11.6 million in arbitration and the Reds offered $8.7 million.
