Reds Finally Hit ‘Homer’; Cincinnati To Call Bailey Up From AAA

Posted by Condo on June 5, 2007

Highly touted prospect pitcher Homer Bailey will be called up by the Reds on Friday and start for Cincinnati versus the Cleveland Indians at Great American Ballpark. Bailey will need to be added to the 40-man roster and a roster move will have to be made and someone will have to be put on waivers to clear room on the 40-man for Bailey. My assumption is that someone like Brian Shackleford or Marcus McBeth will be waived to make room for Homer. I know some people are calling for Stanton’s head, but at this point they need him in the pen’ as a lefty until Bill Bray is ready to return.

Homer was 6-1 with a 2.31 ERA and 51 strikeouts in 10 starts with AAA Louisville this season. Many fans including myself are excited to see Homer FINALLY come up to the bigs and look forward to what he will bring to the table for the Reds ‘horrific’ pitching staff.

And for the fans that think they are rushing him up… honestly, could he REALLY do any worse than what the Reds pitching staff has already accomplished??? At least Homer gives the fans a reason to come to the park now. Although I do question bringing him up to make his major league debut against the Indians, who are one of the best hitting teams in the Majors, I think Homer will be fine.
