Reds Nearing Long Term Extension With Homer Bailey

Cincinnati Reds General Manager Walt Jocketty was on Sirius XM MLB Network Radio and stated that the team would like to avoid arbitration with right handed pitcher Homer Bailey  and that he felt the two sides were close on a long term extension.
Bailey has an arbitration hearing scheduled for February 20th and there is a $2.9M gap ($11.6M to $8.7M) between his demands and the Reds’ offer for a 2014 contract.
Recently Bailey told C.Trent Rosencrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer (LINK ) that the two sides “haven’t really talked one-year that much, it’s been primarily multi-year.”
