I've spent some time lately looking at the stats for Reds starters. Bailey has the highest ERA of all of them. His won lost record isn't very good.
Yet, I would argue that overall this year he has pitched as well or better than any other Reds starter.
One very interesting stat is "pitch value." Bailey's fastball is valued this year at 14.4. This is by far the highest value of any pitch of any hurler on the Reds. This is only one of many interesting, mostly favorable stats for him.
