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.
