Bailey, the last arbitration eligible player for the Reds, confirmed the reports Monday. While the pitcher nor the team would reveal the details, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the deal could be upwards of $100 million over six years.
"It feels like we're really close. That's all I can say," Bailey said. "This whole process has been a long drawn out deal. That's the way it goes. To say this is as confident as I've been, yeah, I think so."
