the nl central
- Homer Bailey will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the 2015 season. - Hardball Talk
- It does not help the Reds for other teams to know this.
Devin Mesoraco (hip) hasn't started a game since April 11 and he has zero hits in seven plate appearances as a bench bat. Odd situation.— Drew Silva (@drewsilv) May 4, 2015

- So that should fix everything.
