I was at the Bats game tonight and spoke with Homer Bailey after the game. This will be a brief write-up, but I want to get the relevant stuff out as quickly as possible.
Homer didn’t have a great game today, but it was good enough. He threw 98 pitches. His velocity sat in the 93-95 mph range with several pitches at 96 and one at 97. His control was a little dodgy as he allowed 4 walks and only threw 4 1/3 innings. The defense, however, was less than stellar and that also contributed to his elevated pitch count.
I asked if he felt he had anything left to do in Louisville and he said, “Leave.” He also said he will be catching a plane to San Francisco tomorrow to join the Reds.
