Just thought worth highlighting that since there seems to be a lingering perception that Bailey is still headstrong and not a team player. Sounds like he wants to do what he can to help. I like that.Bailey is still a ways away obviously. Given how late it is in the season, their position in the standing and the depth of starting pitching, would the Reds consider Bailey for a relief role?
“I don’t know,” Dusty Baker said. “Right now, we’re conditioning him as a starter.”
Bailey has never relieved – except under the piggy-back system used in the minors one year – but he’s willing.
“Whatever they want me to do,” he said. “You’ve got to learn to make adjustments. I’ll do whatever they want me to.”
