Latos has knee surgery
Reds Spring Training is off to a tough start already. Starting pitcher Mat Latos had knee surgery on Friday to repair a tear in the meniscus of his left knee.
The surgery was performed in Goodyear by team medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek. Latos is expected to return to his throwing program in 10 days.
Latos was injured a couple of days ago when he slipped while throwing. He also had off-season surgery in October to remove four bone chips from his right elbow and was progressing well.
More to come …. Walt Jocketty is talking to reporters soon here at the complex.
