Bailey was scheduled to start Saturday against the Colorado Rockies. The team has not yet announced who will start that game, nor a corresponding roster move. Bailey, 28, is 9-5 with a 3.71 ERA (ERA+ 98) in 23 starts.

The Reds first-round draft pick in 2004, Bailey made his debut June 8, 2007 at age 21 and has two no-hitters to his name (9/28/2012 and 7/2/2013). Over his career (eight seasons, all with the Reds) he is 58-50 and has a 4.17 ERA. In February 2014, the Reds signed him to a six year, $105 milllion contract that takes him though 2019 (2020 mutual option).
