Latos hurt trying to stifle sneeze

Mat Latos I never, ever wanted to have to type this, but it turns out my wife is right.

She told me it's bad for you to hold back a sneeze and I thought she was full of it. Mat Latos wouldn't argue with her.

The Padres starter tells's Corey Brock (via Twitter) that he hurt his left side while trying to hold back a sneeze Friday in Colorado and that was the first time he'd felt the pain.

Brock speculates Latos will be headed to the disabled list on Friday. He hasn't pitched since July 8 and would be eligible to come off the DL on July 24. With an off day on Monday, the Padres won't need a fifth starter until July 24 in Pittsburgh.

The team had hoped to limit Latos to 150-180 innings this season anyway and he has already thrown 106 2/3 innings.

The Padres are already looking to add a starter before the deadline, and any problems with Latos could intensify that need -- however, if it's more serious than a 15-day DL stint, it could damage the team's postseason hopes.

The Padres have the second-lowest payroll in the majors, so they have some flexibility to add money.
