    8/30 Minor League Updates

    Sarasota has a double header today and its about to get underway. Homer Bailey is scheduled to start the first game. The game is available online to listen to.
    http://miraclebaseball.com/ and then click the listen live button on the right side of the page. Fort Myers is one of the only teams with broadcasts of the FSL games, so I try to make habit of listening whenever the Reds play the Miracle.

    It'd certainly be nice if Bailey could start exhibiting a bit better command (read: much better command).

    Since the Reds called him up in June ...
    • 21 walks in 28.1 big league innings (6.67 BB/9)
    • 8 walks in 8.2 AAA innings (8.31 BB/9)
    • 5 walks in 7.0 A+ innings (6.43 BB/9)

    Now the usual disclaimer about a terribly small sample size applies here, but his last 44 innings encompass almost a full two months of pitching for him and he's allowed 34 walks. That's a 6.95 BB/9 over those last 44 innings, and while the bulk of them were in the majors, that's still a horrendous walk rate.

    Now we have no idea what's going on, be it an injury issue beyond the groin, mental issues, just lousy control, some sampling of all the above or what ... but whatever it is it certainly doesn't look good at all.

    Homer Bailey - 5th inning

    Batter 1 - FB inside, ball 1. Foul ball. FB, grounder up the middle snagged by Justin Turner. 1 out.

    Batter 2 - Missed the first pitch. Double down the line. Holden got the ball to second in time, but Turner couldn't make the tag in time.

    Batter 3 - FB up, ball. FB leads to a soft fly ball to CF. 2 outs.

    Batter 4 - FB swinging strike. FB fly ball out to Josh Holden who makes the catch coming in.
