Bailey on Bailey
Homer Bailey says he’s taken a what-me-worry outlook about the rotation.
“The only thing I can control is what I do out there,” Bailey said. “I worry about what I do out there. Anything else, whatever decisions are made, aren't my decisions. I can’t control them.”
Bailey had a good start Thursday night. He went four innings, allowing a run on three hits in the Reds' 4-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins.
Bailey says he’s working with pitching coach Dick Pole to get where he needs to be.
“I’ve cleaned up my mechanics," Bailey said. "Dick and I have been on the same page as far as things to work on. He’s giving me a lot of feedback. We’ve been working real well together.”
While Bailey says he’s not worrying about the competition, he knows where he stands and knows he could end up in Triple-A.
“I’d go Louisville and do whatever it takes to get back,” he said. “But I see how well Johnny (Cueto) and (Edinson) Volquez have been throwing. They’ve shown what they can do. They’ve shown they can get people out at this level. I’m very happy for those guys.”
