On Sunday, Bailey said he felt fine, but Reds manager Dusty Baker won't pencil in Bailey until he talks with Reds head trainer Paul Lessard.
"I don't know yet," said Baker. "I haven't talked to him yet about Homer. He says he's doing better. I hope so."
If Bailey doesn't pitch on Monday, there are options for Baker.
"You got [Matt] Maloney, you got [Aaron] Harang," said Baker. "Those would be the top two guys. [Sam] LeCure, maybe."
