I actually expected Bailey would come back and deal thanks to seven weeks of rest. Theoretically his arm should be fresh. Plus, he's pitching in high A, a level he passed through last season.
This should be easy pickings for him.
Instead he's getting cuffed around. I could look past some control issues if he was gassing hitters, but he's not. He was a big hit away from trouble all night and I'm not taking any comfort that it took until the sixth inning for some complete non-prospect to take him deep.
Something's wrong with Bailey. It could be mental, it could be physical, it could be a bit of both, but he's gone off the rails.
