I think we will see Bailey up for 10-15 games regardless:
From a JohnFay tweet:
Volquez is pushed back after MRI finds inflammation. Return before All Star break unlikely.
Maloney is back in AAA. Bailey should stick up in the bigs for awhile.
See if his newfound splitter out pitch can work against Major Leaguers.
If he can still dial it up to 96, anybody/everybody is going to have a hard time laying off that pitch.
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
