Leake, Latos swap starting assignments

Leake, Latos swap starting assignments
CINCINNATI -- The Reds announced on Friday that they have switched pitching assignments for starters Mike Leake and Mat Latos. Leake will now start on Sunday against the Twins and Latos will take Monday's series opener against the Brewers.

Leake and Latos originally became flip-flopped recently when Latos had to move up a day to replace Leake, who was out with a stomach virus. The move was made to split up Leake from Tuesday starter Bronson Arroyo.

"Leake and Arroyo are very similar," manager Dusty Baker said. "Plus the extra day with the off-day, too, gave us the liberty to do something."
