On DL, Latos 'on schedule' in recovery

CINCINNATI -- Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos, who is beginning the 2014 season on the 15-day disabled list, threw 60 pitches over four innings on Saturday in a Minor League game in Arizona. Latos is working his way back after Feb. 14 left knee surgery to repair torn meniscus cartilage and October elbow surgery that removed bone chips.

"Everything went well. There weren't any issues with the elbow or the knee," Reds manager Bryan Price said.

Next up for Latos is to pitch on Thursday at Double-A Pensacola on the affiliate's Opening Day.

"Right now, he's on schedule, and we're hoping to have him back by the middle of April," Price said.
