Bailey will have surgery on his pitching elbow and miss the rest of the season. Bailey tore a ligament in his right elbow and will have Tommy John surgery next Friday. The Reds expect him to be fully recovered in time for next season.

It's been a tough year for Bailey, who signed a six-year, $105 million deal before the 2014 season. He had surgery last September to repair a tear in the forearm by the elbow. He wasn't ready for the start of spring training and opened the season on the disabled list. He was activated and made two starts before feeling pain in the elbow. The Reds say the torn ligament isn't related to the previous problem.

Bailey had a bullpen session Wednesday.

Bailey is expected to make his season debut Saturday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Bailey won't be ready for the start of the season as he recovers from surgery on Sept. 5 to repair a torn right flexor tendon.

The $105 million right-hander said Wednesday he hasn't had any setbacks since arriving for spring training. Bailey has been limited to playing catch since he reported last week and is scheduled to throw off a mound for the first time on Friday.
