Reds Injury Update: Mat Latos undergoes stem cell procedure for elbow

By on 11/05/2014 11:00:00 AM

The Cincinnati Reds head into this off season with numerous questions following a 76-win season, which placed them fourth in the National League Central. The offense was abysmal, ranked 28th in runs scored, while the pitching was solid with a staff ERA of 3.59. One pitcher who looks to come back healthy in 2015 is Mat Latos, who underwent stem cell procedure for his injured right elbow.

I reported back on September 23 that Latos, who had been suffering from a bone bruise in his right elbow, was done for the season.  Latos struggled all season with injury, rehabbing last off season from elbow surgery in October.

Jim Bowden, baseball analyst for ESPN, tweeted the following on Latos.
Latos, a six-year Major League veteran, finished 2014 with a record of 5-5 and a 3.25 ERA in 16 games.  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.
