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.

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.
