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.
