A look at the numbers for Homer Bailey in his starts since coming back from the DL on August 15. He has made 8 starts but I am reserving the right to 'cherry pick' a little. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt on his last start and accept that something was actually physically wrong with Bailey. That leaves 7 starts including tonight's effort against the Brewers.
How has Bailey peformed?

Pretty fair numbers across the board. 4 out of 7 starts have been quality. His control has been much better, only 10 BB. And he is keeping the ball in the park, only 2 HR.
As far as starting pitching goes the Reds could do a lot worse.Code:ERA 3.53 WHIP 1.15 BB/9 2.1 K/9 7.9
