The Cincinnati Reds will place pitcher Homer Bailey on the 15-day disabled list prior to his next start, manager Bryan Price said, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Bailey is dealing with a flexor mass injury in his right throwing arm. According to the report, the injury will not require surgery, allowing Bailey to return this season.

Bailey was supposed to start Wednesday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, but had that start pushed back to Saturday’s game against the Colorado Rockies.
