CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds dropped Homer Bailey from the rotation Friday http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-erick-aybar-jersey , leaving their highest-paid pitcher with no role for the rest of a disappointing season.Bailey is 1-14 with a 6.09 ERA and has lost nine straight decisions. The Reds are 1-19 in his starts this season, the fourth in a row that he’s been injured.Interim manager Jim Riggleman said Friday that rookie Tyler Mahle will take Bailey’s place in the rotation for the rest of the season. Bailey will continue throwing in the bullpen and stay ready in case he’s needed for a start.The Reds considered moving Bailey to the bullpen, but the right-hander doesn’t think he’s capable of pitching in relief.“It’s not so much he’s not willing to do it, but he just feels very strongly that the preparation he feels like he has to do means he will not be able to help the ballclub out of the bullpen,” Riggleman said. “That kind of transition is something he’d have to prepare for in the off-season.”The Reds gave Bailey a six-year, $105 million contract in 2014 that strained their budget. They embarked upon a massive rebuilding movement but were unable to trade Bailey because of three significant arm injuries that required surgery.The 32-year-old pitcher has been limited to 46 starts in the last four seasons, when he’s gone 9-27 with a 6.25 ERA. He has one year left on his contract for $23 million. There’s an option for 2020 with a $5 million buyout, so the Reds are committed to paying him $28 million next year even though he currently has no role.He’s the second-highest-paid player on a team with a $100.4 million payroll. Joey Votto makes $25 million each year through 2023.Bailey plans to work on his fastball, which was his dominant pitch when he threw a pair of no-hitters in 2012 and 2013 that led to his big contract. Asked if it will be difficult to go through September without getting into a game, Bailey said Anibal Sanchez Jersey , “Idle minds can be a dangerous thing. I’ve had a lot of practice over the last few years.”Bailey had surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right forearm in 2014. He had Tommy John surgery the following year. Bailey had a bone spur removed from the elbow in 2017. He missed roughly two months this season with a sore right knee.Bailey had hoped this would be his turnaround season when he showed up at spring training in good health for the first time in years. Instead, he struggled to control his fastball, and he quickly slid into yet another disappointing season.“It was frustrating in April,” Bailey said. “It’s like normal now.” LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rather than pop, Ronald Acuna Jr. started the game with a popup. The big-hitting rookie never got into the swing at Dodger Stadium, and neither did the rest of the Atlanta Braves.Hoping to break loose in their first postseason appearance since 2013, the Braves instead were blanked on six singles Thursday night, losing 6-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers to begin the NL Division Series.Acuna and fellow rookie Ozzie Albies were held in check, as were veterans Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis. Atlanta never got a runner past second base against Hyun-Jin Ryu and trio of Los Angeles relievers.Acuna, who was 0 for 4 and struck out twice Eduardo Escobar Jersey , said he didn’t think there was any pressure participating in his first postseason game.“Never, to be honest. I don’t see any need to put any unnecessary pressure on ourselves,” he said.Two hallmarks that propelled the Baby Braves to 90 wins and the NL East title were nonexistent in Game 1 — solid starting pitching and timely hitting.Atlanta though has continued a late-season offensive slump as this was the third time in the past six games they have been shut out. The Braves have scored three or more runs just once in their past six.All-Star Mike Foltynewicz, Atlanta’s best pitcher all season, allowed four runs on three hits in two innings. The right-hander, who had not allowed a home run in four of his last five starts, allowed two longballs, including a leadoff drive by Joc Pederson on his third pitch.Foltynewicz threw 28 pitches in the first and almost didn’t get out of the inning. He loaded the bases with two outs before striking out Yasiel Puig. Foltynewicz got into more trouble in the second inning, allowing a three-run shot to Max Muncy after hitting Pederson with a pitch and walking Justin Turner.Foltynewicz said that he had the same feelings as if it were a regular start, but manager Brian Snitker thought that pitching in his first postseason game might have gotten to him.“I think he was amped up http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-jake-odorizzi-jersey , overthrown, got out of the delivery a little bit,” Snitker said. “He got hurt quick, really. I mean, we’re lucky he got out of the first inning. But, you know, it was just a situation there you get behind against a guy like that, we were just trying to try and stop the bleeding there a little bit.”The 20-year-old Acuna reached on shortstop Manny Machado’s error to lead off the sixth but was caught stealing when he missed a sign from third base coach Ron Washington.“It was just a kid, I think, that was out there and thinking that his teammate’s going to put that ball in play and he’s going to try to help make something happen Eddie Rosario Jersey ,” Snitker said of the missed sign.The 21-year-old Albies was 1 for 4 and 24-year-old Johan Camargo was hitless in four tries.Snitker’s overall assessment of his team?“I think they were jacked up and excited, and it’s a big moment to this point in their career, Folty included. And take nothing away from what he did all year, I mean. And it was good for him to experience this,” Snitker said.“And I think guys now, since we have experienced it, they’ve been through a lot, they’ve come back a lot all year,” he said. “And I think they’ll come back with a little more sense of what we’re in for tomorrow.”Sean Newcomb, mentioned by Snitker before Thursday’s game as a possibility to start Game 3 on Sunday Robbie Grossman Jersey , was the first pitcher out of the bullpen and went two innings. That would leave Kevin Gausman and Julio Teheran as the likely starters.The Braves’ task of evening up the series on Friday could be one of their more difficult games of the season as they face Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.“I think everyone knows we have our hands full,” said Freeman, who was 1 for 4. “It was nice to get the first game out of the way. A lot of young guys got their first playoff game so hopefully we can score some runs tomorrow.”Anibal Sanchez, who will start for the Braves, didn’t seem that fazed about the matchup.“I don’t think too much about the pitchers that I’m going to face. I just try to keep my mind on the hitters that I’m going to face against Dodgers,” Sanchez said before Thursday’s game. “I think they got a pretty good lineup. It’s no doubt how good Kershaw is and what he’s been doing for his whole career. But at the end, I don’t want to put that impression in my mind.”
