CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Reds and Homer Bailey are nearing an agreement on a long-term contract.

The Reds pitcher said Monday morning at spring training the two sides are "really close" on a multi-year deal. 

Bailey is scheduled for arbitration meeting Thursday to decide his salary this season, but if a contract is reached before then, the hearing would be unnecessary.

Bailey is former first round pick of the Reds and has shown flashes of being a dominant starting pitcher.  He has thrown a no-hitter each of the past two seasons and struck out 199 batters in 2013.
