Homer Bailey looks like he’s going to be a fixture in the Reds rotation for years to come. The 21 year old right hander tossed 5 and 2/3 innings of 3 hit, 1 run baseball and struck out 3 San Francisco Giants to earn his 3rd victory of his career, and putting him at 3-2 on his first season.
He showcased a fastball that was topping out at 96-97 mph and showed command of his changeup and curveball that kept the skeleton-crew lineup of the San Francisco Giants off balance for most of the night.
I honestly think this kid along with Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo could be huge reasons why the Reds will be in the playoffs in their next run. He’s got a Cy Young award or two in his future.
