    Agree with putting Homer on 60 day. It sounds like he's going to need surgery. I hope they don't try to rest it, have him come back in a month or two and then decide to have the surgery.

    I would also put Homer on the 60-day DL, and then they could add one of the other guys.
    I agree that Gregg & Badenhop both need to go, but I don't think they'll throw in the towel on Badenhop just yet. He was okay for your Red Sox last year & I think they'll keep him on the 40-man, unfortunately.

    BAR: Homer Bailey's injury brings questions

    While Raisel Iglesias pitched in Bailey's spot earlier this year, he started Sunday for Louisville, which means Thursday would be short rest, something that seems unlikely.

    There are five other starters on the 40-man roster right now — Amir Garrett (in High-A and scheduled to start tonight), David Holmberg (at Triple-A, but started on Monday), Josh Smith (in Double-A, who would be on regular rest tonight, but Pensacola's starter is listed as TBA), Keyvius Sampson (who started the season in extended spring and has yet to pitch this season) and Matt Magill (in Triple-A, but like Iglesias started in Sunday's doubleheader).

    That would seem to mean the Reds would either have to go with Garrett (unlikely), Smith (possible) or make a roster move to get another pitcher, likely Michael Lorenzen, the call-up.

    Lorenzen, who is not on the 40-man roster, is 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA in three starts at Louisville. He's coming off his worst start of the season, allowing five runs on 11 hits over six innings on Friday.

    To get Lorenzen up, the Reds would need to make room on the 40-man roster, something they could do simply by placing Bailey on the 60-day disabled list, but they would have to be sure Bailey wouldn't be ready for two months. Or they could keep Carlos Contreras, ca

    Michael Lorenzen will make his major league debut tomorrow. Leake has been pushed back to Thursday.

    Now the question is how will they create a spot on the 40 man roster for him. Either put Bailey on the 60 day DL or designate someone for assignment

    My guess is they 60 day Homer. Would love to see them designate Gregg though.

    As much as I don't like playing a man down, I think they see Mesoraco as the best pinch-hit option.
    He might not be ready to catch a complete game, but he seems to me to be completely fine in a pinch-hitter role.

    Badenhop would be my 1st choice. Gregg has had some outings where he hasn't allowed someone to score. I don't think Badenhop has.
