David Dewitt "Homer" Bailey, Jr. (born May 3, 1986 in La Grange, Texas) is an American Major League Baseball starting pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds.

The Reds selected Bailey in the first round (seventh overall) of the 2004 Major League Baseball Draft. Prior to the 2007 season, both Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus named Bailey the top prospect in the Reds' farm system. Because of his success at the minor league level, Bailey's debut was highly anticipated when he was called up to the Major League level in June 2007. He made his Major League debut on June 8, 2007, against the Cleveland Indians. At the time of his debut, Bailey was the youngest player in the National League.
