GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Reds pitcher Mat Latos has continued to rehab and progress since having left knee surgery Friday. Latos had an operation after he tore meniscus cartilage while throwing early last week.

"He'll be fine," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. "I just talked to Doc [Dr. Tim Kremchek] and he said he was good."

Following the procedure, Latos was expected to resume a throwing program in 10 days. He's already been walking without crutches, nor a noticeable limp.
