Profile: Bailey is out until June at the earliest after having bone spurs removed from his elbow, so he will not be an option for anyone on draft day. He has thrown just 34 innings over the past two seasons, but he could be worth monitoring in deeper NL only formats as he comes closer to being ready for games. ZiPS and Steamer still think he can be a streamable option at age 31, but we will need to see how his injuries over the past few seasons affect his performance. On top of overall health, it will be important to follow Bailey's velocity as he attempts to come back from the elbow injury. It has been a while since he has been good, but it is not out of the question that he comes back midseason and puts himself back on the fantasy radar in some formats. 

The Quick Opinion: Bailey is injured again and is expected to be out until June. Leave him off your draft radar, but he could be someone worth monitoring as he gets closer to pitching in games.
