SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -Touted pitching prospect Homer Bailey was optioned to Triple-A Louisville by the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old former first-round pick has been effective in the minors but has failed to show control in the majors. In his last spring training start on Monday, Bailey walked six in 4 1-3 innings, throwing only 42 strikes out of 84 pitches.
With opening day less than a week away, the Reds' likely rotation will be Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo, with newcomers Johnny Cueto, Edinson Volquez and Josh Fogg.
