Sam LeCure To Get Start For Reds Friday

CINCINNATI (AP) - Right-hander Sam LeCure will take Homer

Bailey's spot in the rotation while he recovers from an inflamed

pitching shoulder.

LeCure joined the Reds on Thursday, driving up from Triple-A

Louisville. He is expected to be officially promoted on Friday and

start the first game of a weekend series against Houston.

A reliever will likely be sent down.

The 26-year-old LeCure will make his major league debut. He was

5-2 with a 2.55 earned run average at Louisville, with one shutout

in nine starts.

Bailey went on the disabled list Monday.
