Happy 30th birthday to Homer Bailey

bailey34Happy 30th birthday to Homer Bailey, the Cincinnati Reds hurler who tossed two no-nos in 2012 and 2013.

Bailey, who is still trying to return to the mound from Tommy John surgery, first no-hit the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday, September 28, 2012 for a 1-0 win at PNC Park.

Less than a year later, on Tuesday, July 2, 2013, Bailey no-hit the San Francisco Giants at home at Great American Ball Park for a 3-0 victory.

C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that Bailey has had a slight setback in his push to return after developing some inflammation following a rehab outing.
