    Homer's rehab is officially over.

    The Louisville Bats facebook page says that Homer Bailey ended his rehab assignment today. I assume he will take Cueto's place on the roster.

    This means goodbye to Carlos Fisher or Mike Leake once Wood comes back up and all of the suspension crap is over with.

    I'm guessing Leake is pretty darn close to being shut down.

    I would see the Reds:

    A) Demoting Fisher and having Homer take his spot
    B) Homer pitches in Cueto's next turn with the suspension
    C) Once Cueto's suspension is over Leake is sent down and Wood is recalled
    D) Wood starts in Leake's spot
    E) Leake is recalled at the first of Sept when rosters expands.

    Why would Leake be recalled? He's pretty much at the end of his year innings/pitches wise. You don't think Chapman will be up?

    If Homer's got his groove back, it really helps your chances.

    Once Cueto starts serving his suspension does the team play a man short or do they get to add someone to the 25-man roster?

    I asked this earlier and was told that you get to add someone.

    What makes you think he's not ready? His numbers are fine, his control is improving, he's got to be through the culture shock. I have never seen your reason that Chapman should not come up.

    For his bat. When the rosters expand, he could pinch hit or pinch run throughout September as needed.

    What about Alonso for that? Or would he already be up?

    I don't want Alonso pinch running, ever.

    Re: Homer's rehab is officially over.

    i have a very hard time believing that a contending team would shut down one of their best starters over the course of the season in the midst of a pennant race. what is the point of baseball if you aren't going to throw your best pitchers down the stretch?
