Bailey still has elbow discomfort

It looks like the reinforcements to the already-stellar A's pitching staff will have to wait for a bit.

Recovering A's closer Andrew Bailey threw 25 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, but the news wasn't all good for the right-hander. He said that he still feels discomfort in the elbow area.

"I do feel I'm getting there," Bailey said. "I'm not totally ready to go 100 percent. I don't know how to describe (the pain). It's not pulling or doing anything violent. It's just there." (

Bailey's injury is officially listed as a forearm strain, but the Mercury News notes the elbow -- which has been operated on twice -- is a major part of the problem.

Tuesday was the second time Bailey threw breaking pitches, and he said he was taking everything slow so that he's completely pain-free before coming back. There's reportedly at least one more simulated game to be thrown before Bailey heads on a rehab assignment.

Bailey, 26, is a dominant closer when healthy. In two seasons, he's saved 51 games with a 1.70 ERA and 0.91 WHIP with 133 strikeouts in 132 1/3 innings.
