Reds Bailey, Chapman edge closer to return

Quote:
In what could be their final rehab outings, Homer Bailey and Aroldis Chapman both pitched for Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday night against Pawtucket.

Bailey tossed six innings, allowing three runs and eight hits with one walk and three strikeouts. He threw 103 pitches, 71 for strikes.

"I thought Homer threw well. His velocity was good," Louisville manager Rick Sweet told reporters after the game. "That's what they wanted to see -- they wanted to see him over 100 pitches and they wanted to see him maintain his velocity, so he did what they wanted to see."Bailey has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 28 with a strain in his right shoulder. In three rehab starts for Louisville, he has posted a 6.08 ERA.

Chapman, who has been on the DL since May 16 with left shoulder inflammation, replaced Bailey and worked one perfect inning with one strikeout while throwing 13 pitches, seven of which were strikes.

It was the second scoreless outing in a row for Chapman, who has been physically healthy for a few weeks. He's had nine rehab appearances for Louisville and Double-A Carolina, and his 30-day rehab assignment has expired. There were no plans to activate him on Wednesday, manager Dusty Baker said.

A decision will have to made on whether to bring Chapman back to the Reds or option him to Triple-A.

"I told Chapman to go down there and throw well and [he would] have a good chance to come back," Baker said. "If you don't throw well, then you have to earn your way back. That's what he did. I told him straight up -- because he's Chapman or because it's big for marketing, it had nothing to do with our decision. He had to pitch and that's what he did."

The Reds will also have to make a difficult decision on who to jettison from the rotation to make room for Bailey.

"This increases our problem here -- who to send out and what to do," Baker said. "It will probably be somebody [who] doesn't deserve to go -- but be available to help us sometime in the near future."

oh please oh please oh please oh please! We just sent Wood down today to bring up LeCure from his DL trip (not the best idea in my opinion, also, that's what she said). We need Bailey back and we need Chapman to have some control!
