Reds place Parra on DL, move Bailey to 60-day DL

Cincinnati, OH ( – The Cincinnati Reds made three roster
moves before Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Reds moved pitcher Homer Bailey from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-
day disabled list. The Reds announced Monday Bailey has a right elbow sprain.

Cincinnati put relief pitcher Manny Parra on the 15-day disabled list with a
strained neck. That move is retroactive to April 24. The team also selected
the contract of pitcher Michael Lorenzen from Triple-A Louisville.

Lorenzen will make his major league debut on Wednesday. He was 2-1 with a 2.84
ERA in three starts with Louisville this season.

Mike Leake was in line to pitch Wednesday, but Bailey landed on the DL Monday,
forcing the Reds to shuffle their rotation. Leake will now pitch Thursday
versus Atlanta.
