Bailey to have surgery

Reds pitcher Homer Bailey will have surgery to repair a small tear in the flexor mass tendon near his right forearm.

Medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek will perform the operation Friday morning in Cincinnati. A timetable isn’t specific but Bailey is expected to be ready for the start of Spring Training 2015.

“We tried the conservative approach with his flexor tendon and unfortunately, it’s not healing. So the decision was to repair that tendon,” Reds head trainer Paul Lessard said. “He should be just about ready to go for Spring Training.”

Former Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton had the flexor mass tendon surgery in August 2013.

“Not as extensive, but very similar,” Lessard said of Bailey’s procedure.

Is there Anyone on the Reds roster that hasn’t had to have some kind of surgery this year?

Cozart having problem with his wrist. Price says not serious, won’t affect his ability to play. Isn’t this the same line we’ve heard throughout the year, only to find out it does affect their ability to play. Seasons over, shut him down, along with Philips, Bruce, and Votto.

Here’s wishing him a successful surgery & rehabilitation. Godspeed & look forward to a healthy #34 in 2015!

Thanks Tyrus! I don’t like seeing anyone getting hurt. Hope and pray Bailey has a complete and speedy recovery!!!

AMEN!

Cheers Jim! Agree with you 100%
