Homer Bailey will start Reds' season opener vs Nationals

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Homer Bailey wasn't even thinking about opening day. After years of setbacks with his elbow, the Cincinnati Reds' highest-paid starter just wanted to get through spring training without an issue.

Bailey accomplished his goal, and manager Bryan Price announced that the right-hander will make his first opening day start at home next Thursday against the Washington Nationals. He's getting the chance in part because Anthony DeSclafani is sidelined with another injury.

"Cool," Bailey said after pitching six innings against Colorado on Friday. "It is something I never really thought about. When you climb Mount Everest, no one ever talks about the first step. They talk about getting to the top. It is more throughout the course of the season that I look forward to than just the first one."
