Latos has elbow surgery to remove bone chips; ready by spring training
Reds starter Mat Latos needed surgery to remove bone chips in his throwing elbow, which happened Oct. 11. He's expected to be fine for spring training.
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.
