Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a flexor mass strain in his right elbow. SP Dylan Axelrod was recalled from Triple-A Louisville.

Cincinnati Reds SP Dylan Axelrod, as expected, will be called up from Triple-A Louisville to start against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, Aug. 16, in place of SP Homer Bailey (elbow). Axelrod is 2-1 with a 3.06 ERA in five starts since joining Louisville.
Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Axelrod will have an extended audition in the starting rotation with Bailey out. Regardless, he's not a wise choice to start in daily leagues tomorrow against Colorado.

Cincinnati Reds SP Dylan Axelrod is expected to start Saturday, Aug. 16.
Fantasy Tip: The Reds are facing the Colorado Rockies this weekend at Coors Field. The Rockies are without two of their best players for the rest of the season - Troy Tulowitzki (hip) and Carlos Gonzalez (knee) - but they can still be dangerous at home. We wouldn't recommend streaming Axelrod in this matchup.

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.
