|Mat Latos pleased with batting practice session |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/15/14) Reds pitcher Mat Latos threw 20 pitches of live batting practice Friday and was pleased with the results, MLB.com reports.
"Everything was good. I was a little anxious, a little nervous. My mechanics are definitely rusty," Latos said. "I can't complain for the first time out facing live hitters. I was a little amped up. All in all, I'm satisfied. There are a couple of tweaks and adjustments I need to make."
Latos should see game action next week and could still open the season in the rotation as the team's fifth starter, provided he doesn't suffer a setback with his return from October elbow surgery.
|Mat Latos could make spring debut Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/14/14) Reds pitcher Mat Latos could see his first spring action in Monday's game against the Indians if he doesn't suffer any setbacks with his live batting practice session Friday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Latos has been recovering from offseason knee surgery and may be able to make his season debut on April 6 if he continues to make progress through March without hitting any speed bumps.
|Mat Latos will throw batting practice Friday |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/13/14) Reds pitcher Mat Latos will throw live batting practice on Friday, MLB.com reports. It'll be the first session since having offseason knee surgery in February. No timetable has been set for the right-hander.
|Mat Latos 'very close' to being game-ready |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos (knee) threw curveballs and sliders in his bullpen session Tuesday, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Latos will now progress to live batting practice.
"He's very close to game-ready," manager Bryan Price said.
|Mat Latos could be ready for April 6 start |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/9/14) Reds pitcher Mat Latos could be ready by April 6, according to Cincinnati Enquirer.
Latos is coming back after knee surgery, and has made progress lately. He's been ruled out as the team's opening day starter, but should return shortly after the start of the year. Latos posted a 3.16 ERA in 210 2/3 innings last season.
|After an up-and-down first season with the Reds, Mat Latos was probably the team's most reliable pitcher in 2013. Not only did he win 14 games for the third time in four seasons, but he set a career high with 210 2/3 innings and compiled his lowest ERA since a Petco Park-aided 2010. Making the performance even more impressive, Latos revealed in late September that he had been pitching with an abdominal strain for the last three months, and after the season, he had surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow. That might explain why his strikeout rate dipped to 6.0 per nine innings after the All-Star break. His stuff still suggests he's a potential strikeout-per-inning guy. Of course, now that he'll technically be coming back from surgery, some Fantasy owners might avoid Latos on principle, remembering CC Sabathia's struggles after a similar procedure last offseason. But C.J. Wilson also had bone chips removed and bounced back just fine. It's not supposed to be a career-altering thing. Among the near aces, Latos is as reliable as they come, and at age 26, he still has plenty left in the tank, unlike Sabathia. Don't hesitate to draft him among the top 20 starting pitchers.
