Bailey (elbow) will not be ready to return the majors until mid-June, wcpo.com's John Fay reports.

EDGE Analysis

Not much has changed for Bailey during his rehab process, as he returns from forearm surgery. He began throwing again about three weeks ago, and there have not been any setbacks. The 30-year-old is currently on the 60-day DL and has not pitched since Aug. 7.

Bailey (elbow) threw from 90 feet Monday for the first time since his most recent elbow procedure, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

The session went without incident. Thus begins Bailey's most recent long slog back. He's not due back until midseason at best.

Bailey (elbow) is scheduled to play catch Monday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's the first throwing session for Bailey since he required surgery in February to remove bone spurs from his elbow. The Reds have already shuttled Bailey to the 60-day DL and aren't expected to have him back until June, so the right-hander is still in the very initial stages of the recovery process.

Bailey (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds needed a 40-man roster spot for recently-claimed Nefi Ogando, and given the fact that Bailey will be out until June, he was an easy choice to boot from the 40-man. The former first rounder underwent elbow surgery earlier in February to remove bone spurs, and although it's unclear how this procedure will impact his performance upon his return, it's tough to rely on him much until he can prove he can stay healthy.

Bailey (elbow) said that he hopes to get back to action at the start of June, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The oft-injured starter recently underwent another elbow surgery, and it now seems to be a bit clearer when he'll return to the Reds rotation. This is crushing news for Cincinnati, as now they'll have to lean on Anthony DeSclafani and Brandon Finnegan to anchor the rotation ahead of many unproven options and some older alternatives. A firmer timetable for Bailey's return will likely come as the season progresses.

Bailey underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from his right elbow and will likely begin the season on the DL, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Now roughly 21 months removed from Tommy John surgery, Bailey is still struggling with the after effects. He was knocked around in six starts for the Reds last season before a bout of biceps tenderness put him back on the shelf, and with the right-hander shut down from throwing for four-to-six weeks following his latest procedure, he appears in danger of missing most (if not all) of spring training. In Bailey's absence, the Reds will have two rotation spots to fill with the likes of Bronson Arroyo, Roberto Stephenson, Cody Reed, Tim Adleman, Amir Garrett and Sal Romano.

Bailey (biceps) is likely done for the season, the Cincinnati Enquirer's C. Trent Rosecrans reports.

EDGE Analysis

This doesn't come as a surprise, as the Reds have listed their probable starters for the final series of the season and Bailey was not among that group. It has been over four weeks since he last pitched in a start against the Diamondbacks that was cut short by biceps tenderness. Ideally Bailey will be able to rest up this offseason and report to camp without limitations, as there will be a spot in the starting rotation waiting for him.

Bailey (biceps) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, one day earlier than previously expected, and still might make a start or two this season, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds have an open slot Sunday, though they could move Brandon Finnegan or Tim Adleman into that slot. That said, if Bailey *doesn't* start Sunday, he might not start at all. "If you haven't seen him on the mound in Milwaukee and we've gone through that series, and I can't say the first day in St. Louis that we have him scheduled for a start or two, I would say it would be unlikely that he would make a start or two the rest of the year," manager Bryan Price said.

Bailey (biceps) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday and will be evaluated for a potential start afterward, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey seems to be progressing well through his rehab, and may even get to the point where he can reenter the Reds rotation prior to the season's conclusion. There's no timetable for this possible return as of now, but it should come forth if Wednesday's bullpen session goes as planned.

Bailey (biceps) threw a 44-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and is scheduled for another session Friday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds wouldn't go ahead and call the outing pain-free, but this progress is good to see nonetheless. If Bailey can continue to ramp up his pitch count, he could return to the rotation before the end of the season.
