Reds playing it safe with rehabbing Latos

MLB.com

ST. LOUIS -- Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos, who had a rehab start with Triple-A Louisville scratched on Tuesday because of right elbow inflammation, has been told to rest his arm before he resumes pitching.

"We're going to give him a couple of days off from throwing," Reds manager Bryan Price said on Wednesday. "He had some improvement [Tuesday], but we're going to give him a little more time off before he starts to throw again. It doesn't look like a significant setback at this point."

Latos was close to returning to the Reds' rotation after he had offseason right elbow surgery to remove bone chips and February surgery that repaired a torn meniscus in his left knee.
