MLB notebook: Reds' Bailey to have elbow surgery
Reds pitcher Homer Bailey will undergo elbow surgery Friday to repair a torn flexor tendon.
Bailey has been on the disabled list since Aug. 16. Head athletic trainer Paul Lessard said Bailey “should be ready to go by spring training.”
Bailey last pitched Aug. 7 against Cleveland. His forearm was sore near the elbow after that game, and it bothered him the next time he tried to throw.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
