Reds Injury Alert: Homer Bailey leaves in 6th with knee injury

By on 7/10/2014 02:15:00 PM

UPDATE: Homer Bailey suffered a strain in the patellar tendon in his right knee. The Reds tweeted the news during the bottom of the 6th inning.
Reds radio announcers called it a strained patellar tendon.

ORIGINAL: Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey stopped in the middle of his windup with a 1-2 count to the first batter in the top of the 6th inning against the Chicago Cubs. Cubs announcer Len Kasper's first question was about Bailey's back. Bailey left immediately under his own power.

Matthew Pouliot of Rotoworld announced the injury right as it happened. After the broadcast returned from commercial break, Pouliot tweeted and Kasper reiterated that it appeared that Bailey may have strained his lower back. See the video here.

The Reds are already without Billy Hamilton and Brandon Phillips, both of whom did not start Thursday afternoon and are listed as day-today. Hamilton has a tight hamstring, and Phillips has a sprained thumb. Joey Votto is also on the disabled list with a left quadriceps strain.
