There was still soreness in Latos' elbow during the session. It was the same reason his planned rehab start for Triple-A Louisville was scratched on Tuesday.

"He didn't feel as good as we hoped he would feel," manager Bryan Price said. "We'll see how he is tomorrow. We hoped he wouldn't have any soreness at all. We will give him a couple of more days and reassess."

Latos had elbow surgery in October to remove bone chips and left knee surgery on Feb. 14 to repair torn meniscus cartilage his left knee. He made three Minor League starts in Spring Training and one rehab start for Double-A Pensacola.

Team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek is slated to examine Latos again before the club decides the next course of action.
