Resumes throwing off flat ground

February 21, 2022
Bailey (elbow) announced in early January via his personal Twitter account that he resumed throwing off flat ground.
ANALYSIS
Bailey was cleared to throw approximately 11 months after undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career in February 2021. Since he isn't a member of the Reds' 40-man roster, Bailey is taking part in spring training with the rest of Cincinnati's minor leaguers, but he's unlikely to be cleared for game action until later in the spring or early in the summer. Once he's deemed 100 percent healthy, Bailey will likely settle into the rotation at Triple-A Louisville.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
The Orioles returned Bailey to the Astros in March of 2020 after taking him in the Rule 5 draft a few months prior. Bailey earned a spot on the Opening Day roster but was sent down Aug. 15, never to be heard from again. That was somewhat surprising given Bailey's early results over the first three weeks of the 2020 season (2.45 ERA, 1.23 WHIP), less so when considering he had a 3.3 K-BB%. He was looking at a possible DFA in the winter, but the Reds deemed Bailey worthy of a 40-man spot and acquired his services in exchange for cash considerations before Bailey could hit waivers. The Reds seem to have fallen in love with spin rate, and Bailey sort of fits the mold with spin rates around 2,500 rpm on both his fastball and curveball. The right-hander has worked as both a starter and reliever on the farm. His flyball tendencies could bite him on occasion in Cincinnati.
When the Orioles drafted Bailey second in the 2019 Rule 5 draft, he joined his third organization since being drafted by the Athletics in 2016. Oakland dealt Bailey to the Astros in the Ramon Laureano deal and Houston never added him to their 40-man roster. Bailey is a starter by trade, but most feel his future will be out of the bullpen as his 5-foot-10, 195-pound frame and high-effort delivery are more suitable for relief. Bailey has the arsenal to start, a four-pitch mix featuring a low 90s fastball with rising action, a change, curve and slider. Control is an issue as the 25-year old righthander walked 41 in 92.2 innings for Double-A Corpus Christi last season, though he fanned 103 on route to a 3.30 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. Bailey will probably spend the season working in low-leverage scenarios but there's a chance shorter stints could add enough velocity for late inning duties.
