Andrew Bailey RP NYY 8 Months

Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal writes that Andrew Bailey is a "strong candidate" to be non-tendered.

Bailey would receive a salary north of $4 million in his final year of arbitration, and the Red Sox might not be willing to pay him that much since he's expected to miss half of 2014 while coming back from shoulder surgery. "Ben (Cherington) and I had a good conversation at the end of the year," Bailey said Saturday. "It's a business. We haven't had any contact yet." Bailey will begin a throwing program in January.

Andrew Bailey has labrum damage in his right shoulder and is likely facing season-ending surgery.

This confirms a report by Peter Gammons on MLB Network. Bailey is dealing with a "significant" shoulder injury and is expected to be shut down for the remainder of the season. Koji Uehara will continue to serve in the closer role for the Red Sox, with Junichi Tazawa as the primary setup man.

Red Sox placed RHP Andrew Bailey on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 13, with a right shoulder injury.

It's not clear when the ailment cropped up for Bailey or how long he'll be sidelined. He had turned things around of late after a rough end to June, but Bailey will make yet another trip to the DL. Jose De La Torre is taking his spot on the roster.

Andrew Bailey retired all five Mariners he faced Tuesday in his third straight scoreless outing.

Bailey gave up runs in five straight appearances to end June, but he's opened July by allowing just one hit in 4 1/3 scoreless innings. He's fanned five and walked none during that span. The Red Sox have no complaints about Koji Uehara in the closer's role, but Bailey figures to get the job back if he keeps this up.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Andrew Bailey is no longer the team's closer.

Bailey gets the boot after allowing a walk-off home run to Jhonny Peralta on Thursday, which was his second straight blown save and third in his last five tries. He's allowed seven runs over his last five appearances. Junichi Tazawa is likely to get the first crack at the job, but Koji Uehara could be in the mix, as well.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Andrew Bailey remains the team's closer for now, "but there's work to do."

Bailey blew his third save of the season Tuesday and has allowed five runs over his last four appearances. He has a little more leash, but his owners would be wise to pick up Junichi Tazawa as insurance.
