Latos has elbow surgery to remove bone chips; ready by spring training

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos had arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow to remove bone chips on Oct. 11, per's Reds beat writer, Mark Sheldon.

And thanks to Latos' wife, Dallas, we have visual evidence:

Latos, 25, was 14-7 with a 3.16 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 187 strikeouts in 210 2/3 innings this season, his second for the Reds. He was set to start in the wild-card game against the Pirates, but soreness in his elbow was the impetus for now-fired manager Dusty Baker to go with Johnny Cueto instead.

Cueto would be knocked around in 3 1/3 innings and the Reds were bounced from the playoffs, losing 6-2.

Anyway, Latos is already going through physical therapy and is expected to be fully recovered by the time spring training rolls around.
