CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A source told FOX19 NOW that Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey may not make his season debut until mid to late June.

Homer Bailey is recovering from Tommy John Surgery, which he went underwent last May. He was expected to join the rotation in early May but has had some setbacks after making a rehab start in Louisville.

"He's playing catch," said Reds manager Bryan Price. "We have to take a look at making sure all of the inflammation is out (of his arm). He is throwing currently."

Homer Bailey has pitched in just two games since the 2014 season with a 5.56 ERA in those games. Bailey's setback includes a long list of starters who have also missed time this season with injuries. 

"We've had some bad luck," said Reds starting pitcher Brandon Finnegan. "Stuff has not gone our way at all. We're going to grind it out. Things are going to turn around. We're going to start surprising people." 

On the bright side, John Lamb is scheduled to start Monday in Cleveland after injuring his left thumb on Sunday. 

The Reds wrap up their series with Pittsburgh Wednesday at GABP.
