Reds Injury Update: Mat Latos won't make another start

By on 9/23/2014 10:15:00 AM

The Cincinnati Reds enter the final six games of the 2014 season with a disappointing record of 72-84, fourth in the National League Central. They are 28th in the Major Leagues in runs scored and a respectable 16th in team ERA. One pitcher who is done for the season is right-handed Mat Latos, who has been suffering from a bone bruise in his right elbow.

I reported on September 18 that Latos, who missed his start on September 12 with a bone bruise in his right elbow, threw without pain.

An update on Latos, as reported by Mark Sheldon of, is that his season is over, after missing his last two starts.  Manager Bryan Price said that Latos hasn't been able to throw with fluidity or without pain.  Daniel Corcino is scheduled to pitch in Latos' spot on Wednesday against the Brewers.

Latos struggled all season with injury, rehabbing last off season from elbow surgery in October. Near the beginning of Spring Training, Latos tore his meniscus in his left knee while throwing.

Latos, in his sixth Major League season, is 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA in 16 games this season.  Latos had been consistent, striking out over 180 in each of the past four seasons with 14 victories in three of those seasons. The right-hander has pitched for the Padres and Reds and has a career record of 60-45 with an ERA of 3.34.
