Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (forearm) had a second MRI exam on the strained flexor mass tendon in his right forearm, and the results didn't allow him to begin a throwing program. Bailey has been out since Aug. 8 and hasn't tried to throw since receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection. He could need a second injection, but it would mean another week of not throwing.

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a flexor mass injury in his right elbow. He won't require surgery, and he's expected to return this season.
Fantasy Tip: Tony Cingrani (shoulder) has just begun a throwing program, so he won't be ready to take the vacant spot for a while. Scott Diamond or Dylan Axelrod could come up and take the spot. Both are just NL-only depth options.
