Bailey, who has been on the disabled list all season after elbow surgery in February, was impressive in a rehab start last week for Pensacola, the Reds’ Double-A affiliate. He pitched five shutout innings and allowed just three hits vs. the Mississippi Braves. Bailey is expected to pitch five innings or about 80 pitches Wednesday.

Bailey, 31, has struggled with injuries the past few seasons. Since August 2014, he has been limited to just eight starts. Bailey is 60-54 with a 4.24 ERA in 10 seasons with the Reds.
