Homer Bailey was removed from his start Thursday against the Cubs due to pain in his right patellar tendon.

That's better than an arm injury but still a serious concern for the Reds and their $105 million starter. Bailey allowed three earned runs in five innings before pulling up lame in the middle of a pitch in the top of the sixth. Cincinnati's medical staff should provide an update on the right-hander's knee at some point Thursday evening. Bailey finishes the first half with a 4.21 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 105/38 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings.

Homer Bailey left his start Thursday afternoon against the Cubs with an apparent injury.

Bailey was in the middle of his delivery in the top of the sixth inning when he appeared to tweak something. He dropped the ball straight to the ground and didn't even attempt a warmup toss. This could be bad, bad news for the Reds and their $105 million pitcher. He had allowed three earned runs over five innings to the Cubs.

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel suspects the Brewers will call up top pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson to start Saturday against the Cardinals.

Nelson was sharp in a spot start in late May against the Marlins and owns a lights-out 1.46 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 114/32 K/BB ratio over 111 innings this season at Triple-A Nashville. If he pitches well against second-place St. Louis, he could be up in the majors for good. The 25-year-old right-hander is worth grabbing in all standard mixed fantasy leagues.

ESPN's Jayson Stark hears that the Rockies want a "young impact starter" in return for Jorge De La Rosa.

Stark adds that the Rockies are "very unlikely" to find such a return given that De La Rosa owns a rough 4.75 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 18 starts this season and is set to become a free agent this winter. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday that the Orioles are "monitoring" the 33-year-old left-hander, but it doesn't sound like the two teams are going to be able to find a common ground for a trade. The O's would be taking a step backward if they moved one of their young pitching prospects for a mediocre rental.

Reds designated RHP Brett Marshall for assignment.

Marshall missed the first three months of the 2014 season with a finger injury and is now off the Reds' 40-man roster. The 24-year-old righty has a pedestrian 4.30 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 636 career minor league innings.

Carlos Beltran was diagnosed with two small facial fractures after Wednesday's batting practice mishap.

Beltran had to be scratched from the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday night after a ball that he hit ricocheted off the protective "L" screen and struck him in the face. "You don't expect that to happen when you're practicing," the veteran said late Wednesday. "I had a headache for the whole day. Now it's getting better. Hopefully tomorrow it will get better and I could be back soon."

Jered Weaver (back) is expected to make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Rangers.

Weaver made an early departure from his outing Monday against the Blue Jays with tightness in his lower back, but he played catch Tuesday and felt fine. The right-hander owns a 3.50 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 93/33 K/BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings this season for the Angels.

Astros third base prospect Rio Ruiz went 2-for-5 with two doubles and a walk for High-A Lancaster on Wednesday, raising his season line to .293/.387/.428.

Ruiz has been solid all year, hitting well both on the road (.296/.385/.402) and at home (.291/.390/.455), as well as against lefties (.307/.382/.364) and righties (.289/.389/.451). With top shortstop prospect Carlos Correa out for the season with an ankle injury and the promotions of George Springer, Jon Singleton, and Domingo Santana, Ruiz is currently the Astros' top hitting prospect in the minors. He is unlikely to reach the major leagues before 2016, but he could be a top 10 fantasy third baseman at his peak.
